90's Pop-Tarts

It doesn't get more 90's than Nutella filled pop-tarts with funky 90's patterns on top.


  • Shortcrust pastry
  • 2 cups (200 grams) plain flour or all purpose flour (see tip below)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 ounces (110 grams) butter, cubed or an equal mix of butter and lard
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons very cold water
  • 200g Nutella
  • Royal Icing
  • 450grams powdered sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 drop blue food gel
  • 2 drops pink food gel
  • 1 drop green food gel
  • 3 drops black food gel
  • 2 drops yellow food gel


  1. Shortcrust pastry
  2. Place the flour, butter and salt into the bowl of the processor.
  3. Using only the pulse setting, pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Avoid over mixing if you can.
  4. Through the funnel on the top of the processor, slowly add the water a little at a time until the mixture comes together in a ball.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap (plastic wrap) and chill for a minimum of 15 minutes and up to 30 minutes.
  6. Once the dough has chilled thaw out of the fridge for 20 min and place on top of a large sheet of baking paper. Place another sheet of baking paper on top and flatten with the heel of your hand a little before rolling with a rolling pin. Roll to about 5 mm in thickness
  7. Cut rectangle shapes out and place a tablespoon of Nutella on top. Spread out evenly, leaving some bare pastry on the outsides before placing the second rectangle of pastry on top. Use a fork to crinkle the edges out. Bake for 12 minutes on 160C (320F). Let them cool completely.
  8. Royal Icing
  9. While the pop tarts are cooling, prepare the Royal icing by adding the powdered sugar and egg whites into a large mixing bowl. Whisk until very well combined. To thin out to piping consistency add ½ tsp water, mixing each time until you get a thin enough mixture to pipe.
  10. Split into 5 bowls. Colour one, black, blue, green, pink and yellow.
  11. Add to piping bags and pipe ‘90s patterns on top. For inspiration you can use the patterns I used in the video or just google ‘90s kids fashion!
