PREP TIME APPROXIMATELY 1-2 HOURS
20cm x 35cm rectangular cake board
2 x 453g tubs vanilla frosting yellow food colouring 2 x 450g packaged double unfilled sponge cake slabs
2 x 120g packets black licorice straps 2 x 240g packets licorice allsorts 16 thick ice-cream wafers 4 fizzers or Allens Sweets Red Skins 16 assorted coloured mini M&M’s 1 Tint frosting yellow. Cut one cake slab in half crossways; secure 1½ cake slabs, short sides together, on the cake board with a little frosting to create a long rectangle. Halve whole slabs crossways and position upright on cake at each end to make ramp walls; secure with a little frosting. Cut remaining cake piece in half and secure to the inside of the cake ‘walls’ to make two shorter ‘walls’. Using a serrated knife, cut a rounded ramp shape from cake, leaving a 3cm edge on either side for ramp walls. Reserve any cake trimmings and place over the base of the ramp to build it up a little. 2 Spread frosting all over cake using generous amounts over the base and up the sides of the walls to make the rounded ramp shape. 3 Using picture as a guide, measure and trim licorice straps to cover inside surface of ramp; arrange side by side, pressing gently into frosting to secure, then place 2 pieces across the top to finish. Slice licorice allsorts into individual coloured tiles. Press tiles in a chequered pattern along both sides of ramp. 4 Trim and press wafers for ‘safety fence’ on outside and across the top of the cake. Using scissors, trim ends of each Fizzer into a rounded edge to create a skateboard. Press M&M’s into sides of boards. Position skateboards on ramp.
