Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pop all your ingredients into the mixing bowl.
  2. Step 2: Mix away… mix, mix, mix.
  3. Step 3: Pour your mixture into the greased baking pans. And bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes.
  4. Step 4: When your cake is ready the knife will come out clean. Leave your cake to cool in the pan for a few minutes and then cool it on a cake rack till it is completely cooled (else the icing will slide off!).
  5. Step 5: While your cake is cooling make some butter cream icing. You will need a lump of butter, icing sugar, a dash of hot water and food coloring. This is not a precise science!
  6. Pop the sugar and butter into the microwave and melt the butter. Then stir it together. Add a dash of boiling water – this smoothes it out. And add drop of food coloring in your favorite color.
  7. Step 6: By now your cake should have cooled and you can pour the icing onto it….
  8. Step 7: Decorate away with sprinkles or sweeties.
