This concept is such a good one for a cake. If you've got a group of people coming over and you want to give them a good choice for dessert. This is the perfect solution! It's great for a kid's party too. This party sheet cake contains a different flavour for each row. Mix them up however you like! We've gone with:

Cookies and cream- featuring oreos and whipped cream

Lemon- featuring lemon curd and meringue pieces

Peanut Butter- filled with popping candy, Reese's Pieces & honey peanuts

Raspberry- filled with fresh raspberries, Askey's chocolate treat sauce and desiccated coconut

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºc/160ºcfan/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line the tin with baking parchment.

  2. Cream the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time with a spoonful of flour to stop the mixture curdling.

    • 170g Butter (Unsalted)
    • 270g Caster Sugar
    • 4 Eggs (Large)
  3. Mix the buttermilk and vanilla in a separate jug.

    • 270ml Buttermilk
  4. Combine the salt and the flour.

    • 340g Self Raising Flour
    • pinch Salt (Optional)
  5. In a large bowl, combine the  buttermilk mixture, the flour and salt mixture and the butter and sugar  until you have a smooth batter. Pour into your prepared tin and smooth the top. Bake in your preheated oven for 35 minutes or until risen and golden.

  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

    Top Tip: Making in Advance
  7. To make the buttercream, beat together the butter and icing sugar until smooth. Then whisk in the milk and the vanilla and continue whisking hard for 5 minutes until the buttercream is very light.

  8. Once the cake is cooled, turn out onto a board and flip right side up.

  9. Using a large icing nozzle as a cutting tool, make 20 equally spaced holes in the cake and keep the "plugs". You will need them later.

  10. For the cookies and cream layer, mix 2 or 3 crushed Oreos with whipped cream and pipe into the first row of 4 holes. Sprinkle each hole with some crushed Oreos. Stop the holes with a cake plug.

  11. For the lemon layer, fill a piping bag with your lemon curd and pipe into the second row of 4 holes, reserving 1/4 . Sprinkle each hole with some crushed digestives. Stop the holes with a cake plug.

  12. For the funfetti layer, fill a piping bag with 4 tbsp of buttercream mixed with 1 tsp of funfetti and pipe into the third row of 4 holes. Stop the holes with a cake plug.

  13. For the peanut butter, fill a piping bag with 4 tbsp of peanut butter and pipe into the fourth row of 4 holes. Sprinkle in some chocolate coated popping candy. Stop the holes with a cake plug.

  14. For the raspberry and coconut layer, fill a piping bag with 4 tbsp of raspberry jam and pipe into the fifth row of 4 holes. Sprinkle in some desiccated coconut. Stop the holes with a cake plug.

  15. Spread buttercream over the whole surface of the cake to cover and seal in the plugs. Make sure you remember where the fillings are.

  16. Lay a piece of kitchen paper over the cake revealing only the cookies and cream section sprinkle with crushed Oreo cookies.

  17. Lift this paper carefully, and using two sheets of kitchen paper, shield the cake revealing the section when the funfetti section is. Sprinkle the white chocolate shavings or similar over this section.

  18. Carefully lift these papers and now use paper to shield the cake revealing the end section where the raspberry jam went. Sprinkle this area with desiccated coconut. Carefully lift the paper. You should have a cake with three stripes on it. Cookie Crumbs, a gap, White Chocolate, a gap and Desiccated Coconut.

  19. In the gap that is the lemon Section, pipe zigzags of lemon curd.

  20. In the gap that is the peanut butter section pipe zigzag of chocolate sauce. The surface will now have five stripes.

  21. Over the place where each cake plug is, pipe a swirl of whipped cream. There should be 20, evenly spaced swirls.

  22. In the cookies and cream section, garnish each swirl with a mini Oreo and a chocolate square.

  23. In the lemon section, garnish with a lemon sweet or swirl and a mini meringue or crushed meringue.

  24. In the sprinkles section, garnish with funfetti.

  25. In the peanut butter section, garnish with the peanuts and Reese’s Pieces.

  26. In the raspberry section, garnish with a fresh raspberry and freeze dried raspberries.
