  2. Add in the caster sugar and stir until dissolved.

  6. Turn out the cake when it is completely cooled.
For The Decoration

  2. Add in the icing sugar and mix well.
  3. Pour in the Pimm’s and mix until combined.
  4. Spoon this into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and pipe stars all over the top of the loaf.
  5. Finish with fresh strawberry and orange slices.

Fred's Tip

This cake is best fresh but will last 2-3 days if wrapped well. If storing, remove the fruit toppings first.
