Neon Clownfish

Our Neon Ready-to-Roll Icing Multipacks have been refreshed for 2020, with brand new packaging and a brand new colour included in the pack (black).

To celebrate, we’ve got a recipe for this cute and colourful clownfish cupcake, which uses all the Neon colours, as well as our lush Vanilla Frosting. This little guy is a perfect demonstration of how you can create a brilliant stylised design with just a few colours.

Happy baking!
