I had some fun making this cake, a simple sponge filled with butter icing and jam.

I used royal icing for  all the colours, first covered the cake with rolling icing so I have a base to work on, then the first layer I covered the cake with the icing as is, then separated the icing in to 7 bowls  leaving enough for the light blue colour, then coloured each bowl using wiltons food colouring and mixing to get the desired colour, also adding a little water to loosen the icing so it is a little running , not to much or it will be too runny and go everywhere.

You can see from the slides the process/steps to build the colours, rather simple but effective (I used royal icing so there is still some body in the icing giving that thick paint look)

Waited about 10-15 mins after each colour so they did not run into each other but as you can see some where a little more runny than others, I wanted the colours at different lengths but still had a nice look about it.

The topping was a cream mix and used whole milk, extra swirls and shaved rolled icing.

2Large bags of oringial candies (skittles or similar)

2Large bags of sour candies (skittles or similar)

1bag of granulated sugar

Food colouring to match

Real easy to make and do not worry with the added sugar the flavour will only be a little less but you can always enhance it  with food essences or oils.

I seperated the candies  and bagged them

The only bagged candy not showing is the red but I use the photo below.

First added the candy and begun to blitz, they will stick a bit but from that point you can start adding the granulated sugar and food colouring if it gets to light in colour.

You will end up with a fine suar you can use to decorate all types of cakes and cookies.biscuits alike.

The dark purple one I was rather heavy handed with the food colouring but did not want to add more sugar or I would look all the taste.
