Record

number of

objections

to proposed

liquor store

• By Claire Booker

A RECORD-breaking number

of objections were submitted to

the city council over a proposed

liquor store on Memorial Ave.

In the last three years, the most

public objections the city council

had received on an alcohol licence

application was 121.

But 207 people opposed the liquor

store near the BP petrol station

on Memorial Ave, which is within

1km of four primary schools.

Key concerns for residents are

a lack of parking, an increase in

alcohol consumption and alcoholrelated

anti-social behaviour, and

frustration around Memorial Ave

being a memorial for fallen soldiers.

The proposed liquor store would

operate from 9am-10pm, seven

days a week.

Isobel Anderson lives in the

property which shares a driveway

with the proposed store, and she

said the large number of objections

was “absolutely wonderful.”

Said Ms Anderson: “I think

we’re passionate about our area

here. There’s obviously been a

problem with liquor in the area

because we’ve had a liquor ban

in place. So we’re pretty keen on

trying to stop it [liquor store].”

Quarry plan hearings get under way

• By Devon Bolger and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

THE LONG-awaited

hearings on the plan to open

a contentious quarry near

Templeton were due to start

yesterday.

Residents and groups opposed

to the proposed quarry felt

“apprehensive” before the

hearings.

Fulton

Hogan’s

proposal to

open a quarry

between

Dawsons, Jones,

Maddisons and

Simon Moore

Curraghs Rds

has received

major backlash

from residents in the area.

Said quarry opponent

Simon Moore: “I am glad (the

hearings are) happening but

I’m also a little bit apprehensive

about it because it seems that

throughout the process when an

issue has been pointed out, an

expert has come in and worked

it out and that’s someone who is

being paid by Fulton Hogan.”

However, Mr Moore said he

thinks there is a reasonable

chance the hearing will go his

way.

“The problem is, this is

just the first part of it. If the

commissioners say no, Fulton

Hogan is just going to appeal it.

This is just the start, because if

they lose, they’re not going to

give it up and they have

a lot more money than

any of us,” he said.

His views have been

backed by Templeton

Residents’ Association

treasurer Jolene Eagar,

who has been waiting

for more than two years

for the hearings to start.

“Not in our wildest

dreams did we think it would

take this long or the application

would be as big and complicated

Jolene Eagar

as it turned out to be,” she said.

Mrs Eagar said it is hard to

say what the outcome will be,

but she hopes the hearings

panel will agree approving

the application would be

wrong.

“None of us would have

invested all the time and

energy into this if we

didn’t think that there

was a really good chance

for the application to be

declined,” she said.

The hearings are due to run

until Friday, and then from

December 2-13. Environment

DECISION: The

long-awaited

hearings over

Fulton Hogan’s

plan to open

a quarry near

Templeton

were due to

start yesterday.

MARTIN

HUNTER

Canterbury has published

27 reports from some of the

individuals, businesses and

community groups set to

present evidence for and against

the quarry.

Due to the hearings starting

straight after New Zealand Cup

and Show Week, Mrs Eagar said

horse trainers due to submit at

the hearings will be “seriously

disadvantaged.”

“We have full-time jobs and

these people are at their busiest

with the horses . . . they don’t

have time to get ready for the

hearings,” she said.

SUFFRAGETTE SIGNS

Clearer signs have been

requested to direct motorists and

Sections from $191,000

$10,000 boost to get

aspiring pilot’s career off the ground

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

EVER SINCE Anaru Jackson

was a young boy he has been

fascinated with planes.

“It always amazes me when I

see an aircraft fly past my house,

that something so large can fly

in the sky.”

Living only 15 minutes away

in Hornby, one of his favourite

past times is cycling out to the

Christchurch International Airport

to go plane spotting.

Now he has been taken under

former Air New Zealand captain

John Pauwels’ wing, winning a

$10,000 scholarship to train to

become a pilot.

The 15-year-old was awarded

the scholarship at Hornby High

School’s senior prizegiving

recently.

Being involved in the Young

Eagles programme and the

No 18 (Avon) Squadron, Air

Training Corps, earlier this year

Anaru met Mr Pauwels at the

Canterbury Aero Club.

Mr Pauwels runs a scholarship

programme at Hillmorton High

School dedicated to helping

young people to get into aviation.

But because Anaru does not

attend Hillmorton, Mr Pauwel

created a new scholarship called

the Pauwels Flying Scholarship

Special Award with funding

from the Hugo Charitable Trust.

Anaru described receiving the

award as “pretty amazing” and

he has been left overwhelmed.

In order to receive the award,

Anaru was required to go

through a screening process,

similar to the Air New Zealand

selection process.

It included an interview with

two Air New Zealand A320 pilots,

an online test and a half-day

at the Canterbury Aero Club.

At the aero club, Anaru took

a test using a flight simulator

and a second interview with the

chief flying instructor and the

academic manager.

As part of the flight simulator

test, he was required to answer

simple math questions along with

memorising a series of instructions

on controlling the plane.

Mr Pauwels told Western News

throughout the process Anaru

was professional, very relaxed,

polite and these were the qualities

which make a great pilot.

Following graduating from

Hornby High School in two

years time, he plans to use the

scholarship to go to the International

Aviation Academy of New

Zealand.

Upon completing his year-long

commercial pilot course, Anaru

will then be required to build his

flying hours up to between 8000

to 15,000.

He said the best way to do this

is through becoming a flight

instructor with the academy.

Growing up, Anaru said he

has always been fascinated

watching aircraft fly over his

home in Hornby. His dream is

to one day fly commercial flights

for Air New Zealand.

Winning the scholarship tops

off an already successful year for

Anaru, who has already passed

NCEA level 1 with excellence in

spite of not having completed his

external exams yet.

successes

Achievements recognised

On Monday November 4, Hornby High

School celebrated a wonderful evening,

acknowledging student achievement.

Mrs Kaye Banks a former student

herself, gave a wonderful speech on the

achievements of Hornby High School in the

last 12 months. Kaye is the current Board of

Trustees Chairperson.

The Head Girl and Boy – Shardey Harris and

Lachlan Hickford – respectively, delivered

speeches that would have inspired every

student in the auditorium for the rest of

their school years.

The passion in the Principal’s address from

Mr Robin Sutton was a clear indication

of why Hornby High School is going from

strength to strength.

Well done all award winners.

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula.

Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta. Haere mai haere

mai ki Te Kura Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm

greetings to the Hornby High School community.

I love term 4. It’s a time of celebration of so much

that is great in any kura, and Hornby High School is

no exception. Our senior prize giving showcases the

extraordinary range of achievement that our students

produce, whether it be in academic or cultural work,

or the sporting, leadership, or community spheres. Our

delight at the announcement of the Dux of the school,

or the winner of the Hornby Rotary Creative Excellence

Award, are particularly special moments. This year our

joy was multiplied many fold with the announcement

of a special flight scholarship for Year 11 student Anaru,

and the standing ovation he received from students was

enough to melt the heart.

When I joined the school in 2016 I introduced what

I hoped might become a long-lasting tradition to

celebrate one particular type of achievement. We have

those students who achieve their NCEA qualification,

endorsed with Excellence, before they even enter

the examination room for external examinations in

November. This is not easy to achieve. The “tradition” is

a special morning tea with the Principal. In 2016 there

were two students who achieved this feat. This year,

2019, I have taken 13 students out to morning tea. This

is an outstanding improvement. I notice increasing

achievement at the Merit and Excellence levels in NCEA

across all three levels, and across all ethnic and gender

groups that make up our school community. These

things speak to me not only of improving achievement,

but also higher, deeper, aspiration amongst our

rangatahi. Ka mau te wehi!!

Let’s also not forget the achievement of so many others

that lay behind those results. We are all different, our

capabilities, the things that allow us to be the magic

that we are, may not fit neatly into award categories,

and it is the capacity of Hornby High School to nurture

these special talents that gives depth to our community.

It builds and supports the manaaki that IS our kura.

In this last column for the year, I’d like to pay special

tribute to the wonderful colleagues it is my privilege

to work with. Their dedication to and aroha for our

tamariki is outstanding. It has been an extraordinary

year, and in fact three years, with the planning and final

completion of our full school rebuild, and I am grateful

to our whole staff team for keeping the focus clearly on

the wellbeing of our rangatahi and their achievement

throughout these difficult and disruptive times.

The Community Impact Projects (CIP) are

curriculum innovation projects run with Year 7

Denton Park projects delayed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WORK TO BE DONE: A mural to remember Hornby’s role in

the 1974 British Commonwealth Games and a memorial plaque

to honour Stanley David Denton will be delayed.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

PLANS TO open a mural

dedicated to remembering the

significant role Hornby played in

the 1974 British Commonwealth

Games will be delayed.

The Greater Hornby Residents’

Association was initially planning

to unveil a mural and a memorial

plaque honouring Stanley

David Denton this summer.

But the two projects planned

to brighten up Denton Park will

likely be delayed by a year due

to further work needing to be

completed on the artist design

briefs.

Chairman Marc Duff said it is

expected for the projects will not

be complete until next summer.

“It is better off to do both projects

once and to do them right

as they are going to be there for a

long time,” he said.

A design brief is expected to go

out early next year.

Both projects are estimated to

cost in total between $20,000-

$25,000 and the association is

looking at various ways to fundraise

from applying for grants to

running events.

Since late last year, the association

has been looking to paint a

mural on the front of the Denton

Park Velodrome.

The 1974 British Commonwealth

Games logo is the main

artistic design being considered

for the mural.

This is due to Denton Park

being built in 1970 for the games

with the Denton Park Velodrome

being one of the last Commonwealth

buildings standing that

was used.

Mr Duff said different sports

clubs lease and own parts of the

Denton Park Velodrome and it

was important the association

worked with them to get the

design of the mural right.

The memorial plaque to honour

Mr Denton, who donated to

Denton Park in 1952 is planned

to be placed in front of the velodrome.

Mr Duff said he hoped an

artist will be working on the

mural by the beginning of next

summer.

A COMPLETE revamp is

planned for the Annandale Park

playground in Ilam.

The city council has also proposed

moving the playground

closer to the path to improve

access and limit noise heard at

nearby houses.

All existing trees will remain

in the park.

A new sealed path is proposed,

along with a picnic table,

plants and more trees to make

the area more inviting for families

and picnics.

Members of the public can

submit on a series of proposed

pieces for the playground, including

swings, a mulberry bush

carousel, which has multiple

Fun to be

had at

Denton Park

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HORNBY’S popular community

fun day is gearing up to be even

bigger and better than last year.

The Greater Hornby Residents’

Association has planned a wide

range of activities for its annual

family fun day to be held this

Sunday at Denton Park.

Event goers can take part in

running, sack, egg-and-spoon

races along with a gumboot

throwing competition.

There will also be funni bikes,

lolly scramble, pony rides, hair

platting, stilts, a bouncy castle,

a guest appearance from Santa

Claus and performances from

Darkside Entertainment.

Association treasurer Ross

Houliston said it is planning the

event will be even bigger and

better than last year. Last year,

between 500-800 people came to

the event. This year, Mr Houliston

is hoping for between 800-1200.

“It should be a great day with

lots of old-fashioned activities,”

he said.

Mr Houliston said it will be

a low-cost day with any money

made to go towards community

assets.

The event will be held from 1 to

4pm.

Eco-friendly transport use on the rise

PEOPLE ARE using their cars less

and walking, biking or scooting

more, a survey has found.

The life in Christchurch

transport survey findings show

while travel by car is still the

most popular mode of transport

in the city, there has been an

increase in the use of alternative

ways to get around.

The survey questioned about

3500 Christchurch residents

about their travel habits and the

city’s transport network.

Said city council monitoring

and research team leader Kath

Jamieson: “The proportion of

people who say they are using

their car less now compared to

12 months ago is 27 per cent –

up from 19 per cent in 2018.”

More than 40 per cent of

respondents said they cycle more

often now than they did a year

ago while 21 per cent say they

walk more often.

Ms Jamieson said the arrival

of electric scooters in Christchurch

has also impacted the way

people move around the city.

“Nineteen per cent of

survey participants reported

that they have used a rental e-

scooter more than once a month

in the past 12 months, while

two per cent of those surveyed

said they own their own e-scooter

so it has become a popular

alternative form of transport,’’

ECO-FRIENDLY: The life in Christchurch transport survey has found more people are opting to

cycle, walk and scooter around the city. ​

Ms Jamieson said.

The number of people using

public transport has risen from

29 per cent in 2018, to 32 per

cent this year.

Ms Jamieson said the survey

showed the condition of roads

and footpaths are continuing to

trouble people.

“Fifty-one per cent of the people

surveyed said they were dissatisfied

or very dissatisfied with

the condition of Christchurch’s

roads. Ongoing patch repairs to

road, potholes and uneven road

surfaces are the main reasons

people gave for their dissatisfaction,’’

Ms Jamieson said.

The city council recently

revealed an investment case that

seeks $25-30 million funding to

improve the safety and condition

on more than 100 roads in

suburban areas of the city.

The areas proposed for

roading upgrades are New

Brighton, Richmond, Linwood,

Woolston, Spreydon, Somerfield,

Waltham, Beckenham and

Riccarton.

THE CHRISTCHURCH Girls’

High School sevens team will

look to earn a medal at the

Condor Sevens later this month

at Auckland,

The South Island secondary

school champions will head to

the tournament at Auckland’s

Kings College on November 28,

as one of the favourites having

finished second in 2017 and third

last year.

The team won the Canterbury

qualifiers a fortnight ago and will

look to impress against strong

North Island opposition.

Coach Jamie Livingstone has

been with the team for the past

five years and they have not finished

worse than sixth under his

guidance. He said the team was

motivated to maintain their high

standards.

“I feel we have a good mix of

power and speed and we try to attack

using both of those,” he said.

SPORT

TALENTED:

The

Christchurch

Girls’ High

School sevens

team will be

contenders

at the Condor

Sevens in

Auckland this

month. ​

CGHS eye Condor Sevens medal

“The girls are very driven and

set their own goals and want to

get out of their pool and then see

what happens once they make

top eight.”

Livingstone said traditionally

the team has struggled on day

one of the tournament and it

was something he was eager to

rectify.

“We get up there and we always

start very slow.

“We don’t play a game in the

three weeks leading into the

tournament and that really affects

us,” he said.

Livingstone said he was lucky

to have a squad which was committed

to the sport.

“We know the competition in

Auckland will be much tougher

than what we are used to seeing

down here but we think we can

match it with anyone on our

day.”

The tournament will be held

from November 28 to December

1.

Riccarton, Burnside triumph

at volleyball champs

• By Jacob Page

BOTH RICCARTON and

Burnside High School found

success at the Canterbury junior

volleyball championships.

The Riccarton High School

junior boys volleyball team

will look to defend their South

Island title later this month after

successfully defending their

regional title at Christchurch.

Burnside High School were

dominant winners of the girls

grade, winning the final two

sets to zero over Cashmere

High School and will be

favourites to do same to their

South Island rivals from November

26 to 28.

Burnside coach Sam Ryburn

said it was the first time in

school history the junior girls

team had won back-to-back

Canterbury titles and they were

eager to defend their South

Island crown as well.

“I thought we did the basics

very well and showed composure

when we were challenged,”

he said.

“This was our first goal so

hopefully winning South Islands

on our home court is next.

Ryburn said he expected

strong challenges from the

Nelson teams but also believed

his team was well prepared to

defend the title in spite of having

just three returning players from

WINNERS: Riccarton High School defended their Canterbury

junior volleyball title. ​

the victorious 2018 team.

Riccarton dropped just one

game all tournament which

was held at Cowles and Pioneer

Stadiums.

Riccarton came back from

a set down in the final to beat

Cashmere High School two sets

to one,

Coach Angus Gourlay said

the team gained confidence after

also downing Cashmere in their

round-robin encounter and

were able to feed off that when

they dropped the first set in the

decider.

“We play a lot together and

while we may not have the pure

athletes some other teams have,

we do have experience and that

paid off in the final.

Niall Bunn, Reece Ruan

and Arron Malonzo made the

tournament team with Malonzo

being named the tournament’s

most valuable player,

Service the focus for new liquor store owner

Damian Reid, new owner

of Henry’s Hornby

Local liquor outlet Henry’s Hornby in

Shands Road is under new ownership.

And it’s the fulfillment of a dream for

Damian Reid, who took over the business

on September 23.

“I started in the hospitality industry in

2000, and the plans I’ve had for the last

10 years or so to own my own hospitality

business have finally come to fruition,”

Damian says.

A Hornby local, Damian lives just 100

metres from Henry’s Hornby, and his aim

is to provide good, old-fashioned service

to his customers, which he believes has

been missing from the hospitality industry

in recent years.

“Here at Henry’s Hornby we want to

create a friendly, local atmosphere and

make our customers feel special and walk

out with a good product at a good price,”

Damian says.

With his extensive experience in the

industry – four years at the Blenheim Road

Tavern and Bottle Store and a further 15

years with both Imperial Discount Liquor

and Henry’s from its inception in 2007,

Damian has the knowledge and expertise

to give customers any help and advice they

need.

The four new staff members that have

joined him have also been working in the

industry for a number of years, he says.

“Between us we have 50 years’

experience, so our customers will benefit

ADVERTORIAL

from that.”

“We will be up with all the current

trends in liquor and will be offering

many new and exciting products, such as

premium gins, non-supermarket range

wines, craft beers and healthier RTD

options.”

Henry’s Hornby will have a strong focus

on craft beers, which Damian’s second in

command is passionate about.

In addition to the extensive range and

friendly service, customers will also enjoy

the fresh new look at Henry’s Hornby, with

redecorating due for completion at the end

of the month.

Henry’s Hornby is located at 21 Shands

Dux

PETER BRYANT MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP is

awarded to the Dux of the school Ethan Ng

This is an annual award, established by

the Board of Trustees, to acknowledge the

outstanding contribution to Burnside High

School of the late Dr Peter Bryant, in his role

as the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees.

When Ethan joined us in Year 12, his previous

school provided a thorough record of all of

his achievements while he was a student

there. This was a star studded resume

including massive academic accolades and

top prizes in everything from Cantamath to

Mathmatical Olympiad’s with first place and

distinction awards aplenty.

It also included medals and distinction

awards for Australian Mathematics, Digital

Technology, Science, English and Spelling.

The school described Ethan as “highly

articulate and with a hunger for learning that

drives an insatiable quest for knowledge”.

They also describe him as having an

“infectious giggle” which is confirmed by

our staff and students as they report to me

that he is “just a nice guy to hang out with”

“and that he has a warm sense of humour”.

At all levels of his schooling he has worked

far beyond the expected curriculum level,

demonstrating astounding ability to absorb

new information.

Earlier this year, Ethan was named New

Zealand’s Top School Mathematician -

being described as a “once in a generation

mathematician”, likely due to the fact that he

will only turn 15 next week, and the school he

came to us from two years ago was Merrin

School.

The 47 NCEA credits he has earned this year

are exclusively at Excellence level and he is

entered for no less than seven Scholarship

exams on top of his other SIX subjects.

At graduation Ethan collected awards

including First Place in Chemistry, Accounting

and Economics and Excellence Awards for

Calculus, Physics and Statistics.

We wish Ethan well for his examinations and

future endeavours as he aims for selection

in the New Zealand Olympiad Mathematics

team before beginning a double degree in

Mathematics and Mechatronics Engineering

at the University of Canterbury.

Proxime Accessit Award 2019

Felix Backhouse

When Felix came to Burnside High School, the enrolment notes supplied,

described him as a highly capable, quiet and studious person, and that an

advanced Mathematics programme would be advised. He was very serious and

focussed on his academic work from the outset and his love of learning was a

common observation by all his teachers at both Westburn and his early years

at Burnside High School. While Music has been a passion for him throughout

his time at Burnside High School earning him countless awards, his academic

dominance has seen him earn top placings in every subject he has studied since

2015, including the General Excellence Award for West Division last year.

He puts his success down to not much more than just doing the work and keeping up with

things, however his teachers have described him as incredibly thoughtful and analytical – deep thinking and

with a wry sense of humour – he is the one they need to watch when they make a mistake because he WILL

pick up on it.

His Cambridge and NCEA results earned make for impressive reading. In NCEA, he has amassed 257 credits at

Excellence Level, with few lower grades and he enters his exams with a clean sweep of 34 Excellence credits

at level three behind him. He also will tackle Scholarship examinations in FIVE subjects this year.

Felix was offered a $20 000 Top Achievers Scholarship to Auckland University in 2020, however his intention

is to study at University of Canterbury and he has secured Emerging Leaders and High Achievers Scholarships

to go there.

We wish Felix well as he embarks on his very impressive and exciting future.

Musician of the year

The winner of the Peter Rowe Cup for Musicianship is Felix Backhouse

Felix is an outstanding all-round musician who has contributed at the highest

level to every facet of the music department in his five years at Burnside High

School.

He came through the Specialist Music Programme at Westburn School and

started Burnside as a very good violinist who also played trombone. He leaves

as an outstanding trombonist who may still play a bit of violin!

Felix has been a member of Malestrom for five years, experiencing every

competition success they have achieved. He has been a member of the Symphonic

Band and the lead trombonist for the Big Band for five years; during which time he has

won countless awards, including Best Trombonist at the Manawatu and NZSM Jazz Festivals

in 2018 and Best Overall Musician.

He has been a member of the award winning Funk Band for five years and the Burnside Orchestra for five

years, four as section leader. Felix has been selected for membership of the New Zealand Secondary Schools’

Symphony Orchestra and the New Zealand Youth Jazz Orchestra and has experienced success in the NZCT

Chamber Music Contest.

Sportsman of the Year

Sang-Yong Park

Sang-Yong won his third NZSS Table Tennis Teams title at the NZ Secondary

Schools Championships, and also placed 2nd in the U19 Individual singles at this

tournament. At the South Island Championships he placed 1st in U18 Boys singles,

U18 Boys doubles and U18 Mixed doubles and 2nd in the Mens Open singles.

Internationally he competed at the ITTF Oceania Junior Championships in Tonga,

claiming Silver in the Boys Team and Bronze in Boys Doubles. In the recent ITTF-

Oceania NZ Open Championships, he could only compete in two events due to a

back injury, but gained a gold medal in the U18 mixed doubles and a silver in the

U21 mixed doubles. He has recently been awarded the 2019 Junior Player of the

Year Cup, from Table Tennis NZ. He is also a Table Tennis Coach of junior players.

Sportswoman of the Year

Ellena Firth

Ellena captained our Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Champion Burnside High

School Girls Football 1st XI team this year. Ellena plays for Canterbury United

Pride which were National League winners, and for Coastal Spirit Premier

Womens - the team who were runners-up in the NZ Cup. Ellena was named in

the U19 NZ Secondary Schools team, and selected for their tour to America.

She also plays Cricket for Burnside High and the St Albans Cricket Club and

made the Canterbury U18 Girls Cricket team this year.

Tasty Bites

How to make a cake taste as good as it looks

There is not much better

than a cup of tea or

coffee and a slice of cake,

especially when it almost

looks too good to eat. Here’s

one you can easily decorate

yourself

Morning Magpie’s carrot

cake

For the cake

2 free-range eggs and 2 freerange

egg yolks

4 free range egg whites

320g flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp ground cloves

400g neutral-tasting oil such as

sunflower or canola

540g white sugar

100g chopped walnuts

100g desiccated coconut

270g peeled and grated carrot

(about two carrots)

For the icing

525g cream cheese

210g softened (to room

temperature) butter

105g icing sugar

75g honey

fresh thyme

Directions

Cake

Separate the eggs (six in total).

Put the whole eggs and yolks

in one bowl, and the whites in

another large, clean and dry

metal bowl.

You will be left with two

spare egg yolks (with a little

imagination you can find a way

to put them to good use in some

other noble kitchen endeavour).

Add a pinch of salt to the egg

whites and, with an electric

beater, whisk until they form

stiff white peaks (the salt helps to

stabilise them). Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the

sugar and oil on high for 2min.

Add the whole eggs and egg

yolks, continuing to mix until

incorporated.

Use a rubber spatula to mix the

walnuts, coconut, and carrot into

the creamed oil and eggs.

Sift the flour, baking powder

and soda, and spices into the wet

mix, and delicately fold through.

Fold one-third of the whipped

egg whites into the rest of the

batter, followed by the rest of

them. Don’t worry if there are a

few streaks of white left – this is

far preferable to over-mixing the

cake batter.

Divide the

batter between

two greased

round silicon cake

moulds. Make sure

to weigh as you

are filling them,

so that the two

rounds end up

evenly sized.

Bake in the

centre of the oven

for 40min at 160

deg C.

After baking,

let the cake cool

completely in the

moulds (at least

four hours).

If you are

leaving it

overnight before

icing – this is a

good idea – wrap

the rounds in cling

film once cooled and removed

from moulds.

Assembly and decoration

Make sure all ingredients are at

room temperature, and also clear

a shelf in your fridge that a large

chopping board will fit on.

In a large bowl, beat the

cream cheese on high for about

4min, until it takes on a silky

consistency. Beat in the butter.

Add the icing sugar and honey,

and reduce the beater to a lower

speed until they are fully mixed

through. Then your icing is

ready.

If the cake rose into a dome

shape while baking, remove the

rounded top with a bread knife

to make sure both rounds are

level.

Place one cake round on a

large chopping board, and spread

a 1cm thick layer of icing on top

of it. Stack the other round on

it, making sure the two are well

aligned. Don’t worry if some of

the filling comes out the sides.

Use an offset spatula to spread

a thin layer of icing over the top

and sides of the assembled cake.

It doesn’t matter if you can see

the cake through this layer. Once

it is covered, place the cake in the

fridge for one hour. When this

first layer of icing sets, it prevents

any dark cake crumbs getting

mixed up in the final layer of

white icing.

Once the first layer is set,

remove the cake from the fridge

and apply the rest of the icing as

you see fit. You can put a thick

layer on the top and a scant layer

around the sides, but this is just

a matter of taste – you should

experiment and find a style you

like. Chill the cake for another

hour before cutting. Garnish

with fresh thyme leaves and flaky

sea salt. Use a hot bread knife to

cut the cake, cleaning it between

each slice.

apartments – you’ll find a place to make your own. Our homes are

accessible, high-quality, and there are no worries about maintenance or

upkeep as we do it all for you. Pets are also welcome, and you can even

go away on holiday knowing your home will be safe and secure. We’ll

also make sure you’re aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that

there won’t be any unexpected surprises.
