In the clip below, Nancy teaches us how to bake her very own special and shares her unique recipe for baking the perfect Shaun the Sheep cake this summer.
From Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run, comes the highly anticipated big screen debut of Shaun the Sheep. When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he baa-rgained for! Shaun’s mischief accidentally causes the Farmer to be taken away from the farm, so it’s up to Shaun and the flock to travel to the Big City to rescue him. Will Shaun find the Farmer in the strange and unfamiliar world of the City before he’s lost forever? Join Shaun and the flock on their hilarious, action-packed adventure in Shaun the Sheep the Movie.
Follow the SHAUN THE SHEEP recipe below:
For the cake
260g Soft Margarine
260g Caster Sugar
260g Self raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
Finely grated zest of 2 lemons and 1 tsp lemon extract
2 x 23cm cake tins greased and lined
Cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy then add the eggs one at a time followed by the lemon zest and extract. Fold in the flour and baking powder then divide between the two tins.
Bake at 175 degrees for 35-40 minutes until pale golden in colour and springy to the touch.
Turn out onto cooling racks and leave until completely cold.
For the filling and crumb coat
150g butter (soft at room temperature)
450g Icing sugar
Juice of the 2 lemons (above)
1 tsp lemon extract
100ml double cream
Cream the butter then add the icing sugar gradually until you have the consistency of bread crumbs. Add the lemon juice and extract and double cream and whisk until light and fluffy.
Use half of the filling to sandwich the cake together then the other half to apply a smooth crumb coat.
For the sheep characters and covering the cake
1kg white fondant
Green, black and yellow (only one pot of each – not one per person) food colour gel (not liquid)
125g Black fondant
Few strands spaghetti
Drip green colour gel into 500g of white fondant and knead until the fondant is grass green. Roll the fondant out and cover the cake and then cut around for neat edges.
Hand cut flowers from the remaining fondant and create white rectangular balls for the body and head of Shaun. Using a brush or scourer give Shaun’s body some texture by patting him lightly. Then create arms, legs, ears and eyes from the black fondant, using spaghetti to keep them in place.
