Baking ingredients

  • 200 g plain flour
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 50 g icing sugar
  • 125 g unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 800 g Renshaw Luxury Baker's Caramel

Decorating ingredients

  • 2 Ready rolled pastry sheets
  • Rainbow Dust Metallic Paint (selection)
  • Rainbow Dust ProGel Colours (selection)
  • Rainbow Dust Snow White Twinkle Dust


Making the pastry:

Step 1

Cream together the butter and sugar.

Step 2

Add the egg yolk, flour and cocoa and mix until a dough forms.

Step 3

Roll out the pastry between two sheets of baking paper to about 2mm thick or just bigger than your tart tin (mine was 10 inches).

Step 4

Line the tin with the pastry, using a spare piece (dusted with flour) to press the pastry into the edges of the tin.

Step 5

Line the pastry with baking paper and fill with baking beans or dried lentils/rice, freeze for 10 minutes.

Step 6

Bake for 12 minutes then remove the weights and paper and bake for a further 10 minutes, leave to cool in the tin.

Filling the tart:

Step 7

Heat two tubs (for a 10 inch tart) of Renshaw caramel until spreadable (about a minute on medium in the microwave), spread evenly to fill.

Making the pastry decorations:

Step 8

Print a chosen Christmas image (e.g. penguin) and place onto a sheet of ready rolled pastry. Cut around the template.

Step 9

Mark out key features and add texture to the pastry.

Step 10

Add extra pastry to build up some depth, stick together with a little water.

Step 11

Add the final details - like little feet!

Step 12

Paint with Rainbow Dust ProGel Colours (diluted in water) and metallic paints.

Step 13

Add a few different colour tones to give more depth to the penguins.

Step 14

Cut out some holly leaves or other small Christmas shapes and paint with the metallic paints.

Step 15

Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes at 180C.

Step 16

Cut out a circle of pastry slightly bigger than your tart tin, cutting around a bowl or plate helps.

Step 17

Paint the pastry ring with silver metallic paint and sprinkle with snow white Twinkle Dust. Bake for 12 minutes at 180C.

Step 18

Assemble the decorations onto your pie and store in the fridge.
