Make sure that the cake is completely cooled from baking. Otherwise the icing will melt during decoration.
Cut the cake into fingers about 7-10 cm long by 2-3 cm wide.
Using a medium/large bowl, mix some of the icing sugar with water to make the icing mixture. Start with a few drops of water, adding more as you mix, until it has the consistency of Tomato sauce. (Note: Depending on the amount of cake fingers you have, it is best to make make a small amount of icing and make more as required).
Add a few drops of the food colouring to the icing sugar mixture. Mix it well.
Add some of the Coconut to a medium/large bowl.
Using a fork or your fingers dip the fingers into the icing sugar bowl, making sure to cover all the sides of the cake with icing.
Then roll the fingers in the coconut bowl.
Leave to set on a plate.
Once set, enjoy with a hot beverage, or a glass of milk. Perfect for any occasion really. Robin likes to eat as many as he can just by themselves. Whereas Emma-Jane likes hers with a nice hot cuppa.
