Marshmallow Shortcake Slice Instructions

Preheat oven to 180˚C or 160˚C fan-forced. Line and spray a slice tin with baking paper.

Cream butter and sugar using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, egg and dry ingredients. Mix well and then press into a slice tin.

Bake for 20 minutes or until light golden brown.

Remove from oven and allow to cool. Leave in the pan.

Marshmallow Shortcake Slice Topping

Dissolve the gelatine in boiling water in a large bowl. Add vanilla and the sugar and beat on medium-high speed with an electric mixer until stiff and fluffy adding drops of food coloring and flavoring to get the color and flavor you like.

When thick and stiff (like stiffly beaten egg whites that hold their shape), spoon over the cooled base and leave to set in the fridge. Cut into squares.

Optional: Sprinkle with desiccated coconut after pouring topping onto the base.
