Man on the Moon Cake
2 tubs truwhip (any kind), thawed
● 1/4 cup butter, softened and chopped, plus extra, to grease
● 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
● 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
● 4 eggs
● 3 cups self-rising flour
● 1 cup milk
● Blue food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using extra butter, grease the base and side of a 2 liter (8-cup capacity) ovenproof glass bowl (a Pyrex will work). Cut two 2in x 12in strips from baking paper. Line the base and side of bowl with the paper strips so they form a cross, then fill in the gaps with extra baking paper, cutting to fit.
Beat butter, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour over butter mixture. Add milk. Stir until well combined. Divide mixture evenly among 3 bowls. Tint 1 batch bright blue with blue food coloring. Tint second batch pale blue with blue food coloring. Leave third batch plain. Place alternate spoonfuls of the 3 batches into prepared bowl. Using a skewer, swirl together to create a marble effect.
Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool cake in bowl for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Place totally cooled cake on a cake stand or board. Spread thawed truwhip all over cake. If desired, push white chocolate discs, flat-side up, into the frosting to form craters. Top with astronauts. Refrigerate or serve immediately.
