This is the cake i made last year for my birthday, i wonted to have a go and make a cake myself, this was the first cake i ever made myself. using the recipe my nan passed down to mum, and mum passed down to me. to make fantastic cakes every time, all you have to do is:- weigh 6 eggs in their shell's, togeather in a scales, note the weight of it. take the eggs out, then weigh the self raising flour to the same weight as what the eggs were. put in mixing bowl. then weigh the sugar the same weight as the eggs. add to mixing bowl. last of all weigh the butter the same weight as the eggs and add to mixing bowl. break eggs add to mixing bowl. then mix until nice and fluffy. divide in to two cake tins, then put in a pre heated oven at temperature of 190 cO. for about 15 or 20 minutes , when brown, to check, its cooked take out of oven. put knife in centre of the cake, if it comes out clean then its cooked. if not put back in oven for a little longer. when cooked push out cake on a cooling rack, leave to cool. when cool spread over bottom cake, with shop bought butter icing mix or make your own. put top of cake on. then either dust the top with sieved icing sugar or spread butter icing on top like id did here. add chocolate sprinkles to finish. if i can do it anyone can. good luck! and enjoy.
