My most realistic jaffa cake to date. I was tinkering and thinking about how to get the jelly part more jelly like, cause although the older version where I used translucent orange clay worked okay-ish it was more the cutting with a straw I didn't like. Just not the right effect.
So this is the updated version, and with textured bottom too! The jelly part (For anyone who's mildy intrigued) Is liquid fimo gel tinted with teeeny tiny bits of oil paint and dropped onto a lined baking sheet, baked and then trimmed to size. I tried making a wire circle to keep the blobs more circular and a foil bowl but both failed. I want to try again with one of these methods once I've been to a hardware store to find something metal and circular to keep the clay circular. But on with the photos!






Thanks for looking!

These are wicked!  They look super realistic.  I didn't see your previous attempts to say how they compared, but that's definitely some realistic looking orangey centre you've made Smiley  I'm also really impressed with how cakey the cakey part looks.  Great job!

I think these look fabulous, but if you want something metal and circular, have you checked out "fondant cutters" -- our local big chain craft store carries them (in the cake decorating section) and they come in a range of sizes (I'm not looking at my set at the moment, but I'd guess they range from 1/2" to 2").

They look so yummy! Super expensive around here in the US, plus they don't taste right. :/  We love it when our UK swappers send them to us. ^.^ Along with Stroop Waffles from the Netherlands! :3

Yeah, the reason I'm trying a hardware store first is to keep costs down because from previous trips to hobbycraft etc they seem to be much to much out of price range. But I'll bear it in mind!
