YOU WILL NEED

Cake

  • 2 extra large eggs at room temperature
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) canola oil
  • ¼ cup (60 g) butter, melted
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) full cream milk, warmed
  • 1 x 580 g Ina Paarman’s Red Velvet Cake Mix

Filling

  • 2 cups (500 ml) fresh cream
  • 5 T (75 ml) Ina Paarman’s Lemon Cheesecake Mix

Method

Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 180°C. Line the base of a Swiss Roll pan, 36 cm x 25 cm, with baking paper.

Mix cake according to box instructions. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn out onto a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

Half whip the cream then sprinkle over the dry Cheesecake Mix and beat until firm.

Divide the cake in half.

Spread with ⅓ of the cream on one half of the cake. Place the best side on top. Cut in half again to make two slabs. Generously pipe the remaining cream over the tops of the cakes.

Sprinkle with gold dust if using. Cut into neat portions.
