Celebrating 1st Birthday... with a Pinterest worthy cake

Sunday, 29 March 2015

To celebrate, here is the easy-peasy Pinterest worthy cake recipe! 

For three tiers: 
- 8 eggs
- 16oz self-raising flour
- 16oz butter/margarine 
- 16oz caster sugar 
- 2 capfuls of vanilla essence  

Mix all ingredients together. Put into three tins as equally as you can. Bake at 180 degrees for 25 mins. Then leave to cool. 

For the icing I made a basic buttercream and coloured it with baby blue food colouring. 
Make sure the cakes are cool before icing!! 
Cutting the tops of the cake so they are all even I filled each space with buttercream and stacked on top of each other. 
To get that Pinterest finish you can use a tutorial like this

A cake for the baking incompetent! 

Thank you for all the love this year!
