Flyingpops has put on her baking hat (all of a sudden) and now we have cakes coming out of our ears! This one she made last night to celebrate Halloween, a spooky green cake!
To make it you need the following -
6 ounces of self raising flour
6 ounces of caster sugar
6 ounces of butter
2 teaspoons of green food colouring
1 dash of vanilla essence
- Beat this lot together into a smooth creamy mixture (Flyingpops used the hand blender with whisk attachment and didn't make *too* much of a mess thanks to careful use of a tea towel, but you can do it with a spoon if you need to)
- Spread the mixture evenly between two 6 inch, medium depth cake tins which you have lined with a grease-proof paper disk (draw around the bottom of the cake tin onto the paper and cut just inside the line, it will fit perfectly in the bottom)
- Put into a pre-heated oven (190 Centigrade/Gas mark 5) for between 20-25 minutes (until golden brown)...turn the tins out onto a wire rack and leave them to cool, carefully removing the grease-proof paper disks.
- Spread your favorite jam onto the base, then sandwich the two together, decorating the top with icing (butter icing with lemon zest is good, but use your imagination) and sprinkles of your choice...
