Preheat oven to 180°C bake.

Cream butter and Chelsea White Sugar together. Add vanilla, then egg and sifted dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.

Press into a slice tin and bake for 20-30 minutes, until golden and firm.

Soften gelatine in cold water in a medium saucepan. Add Chelsea White Sugar and boil for 8 minutes. Cool.

In a separate large bowl, beat egg white until stiff. Fold in Chelsea Icing Sugar, then slowly pour in cooled gelatine. Beat until white and thick (about 3-5 minutes).
Add raspberry essence and food colouring and beat until combined. Spread on shortcake immediately and sprinkle with coconut, if using.
Leave to set for a few hours before slicing and serving.
