This enchanting cake is so summery with its circlet of violas and pansies. In spring it would look equally pretty decorated with crystallised primulas.



Place the cake upside down on to your serving plate or cake stand.

Tip the icing sugar into a small bowl and add 1½-2 tbsp water and a tiny amount of purple food colour. The icing should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Spoon it over the cake and allow it to drizzle down the side
