Toy Story Coconut Iced Sponge


I found some Toy Story sugar cake icon toppers so had to surprise my little ones with a cake. I just whizzed everything together and had a sponge base ready. My eldest loves coconut, so this came into play. End result a cute looking slim line sponge as I didn’t want them to have too much, that disappeared in minutes, especially as their Daddy helped eat it too. The almond extract tastes sooo good with the coconut and sugar! Yummmmm!

What was really cute was that my 3 year old would not eat the sugar characters as he said “No! Mummy, I can’t eat them, they are my friends!” Lol!

Have a tremendous day and I shall see you all tomorrow friends, much love D x



110g Self raising flour
80g butter/low fat butter spread
60g sugar
1 large egg
2/3 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 level tsp baking powder


1 cup icing sugar
Few tsps of water
Toy Story sugar paper icons
Desiccated coconut



Preheat the oven to 180°c, grease a small round cake pan

Put all the ingredients into a food processor or a large mixing bowl. Combine until you get a smooth cake batter

Place in the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, ensuring it’s cooked through

Meanwhile prepare the icing. Slowly add the water and mix until a sticky yet slightly runny icing forms

Once the cake is done, wait for it to cool down completely. Then spread out the icing on top sprinkle on the coconut and add the icons

It’s ready for those little eager hands to grab!
