Making the cream

Beat together the whipping cream and sugar until you get a firm consistency.

Making the frosting

Sift the confectionery sugar into a large bowl, then add all the other frosting ingredients and mix until you get a smooth soft frosting.

Putting it all together

Once the cake has cooled, carefully cut the cake in half (horizontally). Using a large knife is good for this.

Using the piping bag, pipe the beaten cream onto the top of the bottom half of the cake. Or you could just spoon the cream on.

Place the top of the cake gently onto the cream filling.

Place the frosting into a piping bag with a decorative tip and decorate. This will give your cake a nice professional look
