Mock Cream is a popular alternative to real cream..
..but it also lasts a bit longer if you need to make a birthday cake in advance.
You can add any colours or flavours you like – but this is a standard vanilla version.
Here’s how to make mock cream!
Using electric beaters cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Whilst continually beating, slowly add the boiling water alternatively with the milk until all the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
Add the vanilla extract and any colours or flavourings you desire.
