Instructions
 

  1. Using an electric mixer with a paddle, cream Planta Multi-purpose and caster sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg yolk and vanilla essence.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour and custard powder. Add about 3/4 of the flour mixture to the Planta Multi-purpose mixture to form a soft dough.
  3. Fill the dough into a flower semperit maker. Press gently and create dahlia-shaped flower. (Note: If dough is too soft to hold its shape, add a little more flour. Successful extrusion depends on the texture of dough and size of petal in mould.)
  4. Place a tiny piece of cherry in the centre of the flower and press down lightly.
  5. Continue until all dough is used up. Add Planta Multi-purpose if dough becomes dry and will not extrude properly.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
