1. Preheat oven to 350 deg. F and line a baking dish with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine arrowroot starch, milk and oil. Mix well to avoid arrowroot clumps. Set aside for 10 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes.
3. In the same bowl, mix in vanilla extract, butter, apple cider vinegar and sugar.
4. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix well until the batter is smooth and well combined. Ensure there are no flour clusters remaining.
5. Pour batter into prepared baking dish and bake for 20-28 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test. If using a deeper baking dish bake for 25-28 minutes. If using a shallow baking dish baking for 20-23 minutes.
6. Remove from oven and transfer cake to a cooking rack. Allow sheet cake to cool completely before icing.
7. Icing – Using an electric beater, cream together butter, vanilla extract and coconut cream. Mix in sugar 100 g at a time until smooth and well combined. Adjust sugar quantity as needed. Equally divide icing into 4 bowls and mix in 1 Supercolor into each bowl.
8. Starting with any 1 Supercolor, pour Supercolor icing to one end of the sheet cake. Using a butter knife or the back of a spoon, gently spread icing width wise to cover ¼ of the cake. Follow the same process for the remaining icing. Allow icing to settle before serving.
