Thank you xx
I have one ceramic cake stand and one cookie jar to give away to one lucky Mummy Mishaps reader
all you have to do is fill in the rafflecopter form below to be in with a chance of winning
I was sent a cake stand to use for the purpose of this post. all words and opinions are my own. the cake won’t go to waste, as its my mums birthday tomorrow so it will get eaten!!
ingredients for the buttercream:
75g unsalted butter
100g icing sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
pre-heat the oven to 180oC/160oC (fan) and grease 2 sandwich tins
cream the butter and sugar together until pale and creamy
add the flour and eggs and mix well until all combined
divide the mixture into as many bowls as you have food colourings
add the food colouring to each bowl and mix well
then put half of each different coloured cake mix into each sandwich tin
once cake mix is in each tin I took a knife and swirled the colours together to give a marbled effect
|its a bit swirly whirly|
bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked through
Make the butter cream by mixing all the ingredients together to form a smooth paste
once the sponges are completely cooled add the butter cream to one half and then sandwich them together
I had a little helper assist me with making the cake!
The rainbow swirly effect makes for a very pretty sponge and every slice has a different rainbow pattern
|its like psychedelic maaaaan! :0|
My best friend Kimberly celebrated her birthday yesterday but came round to mine for tea tonight. In her honour I made her a birthday cake and thought I would share the recipe
As many regular visitors to my blog will know I love cake and any excuse to make one or have some I will think of one! I think cake can be eaten at any time of the day really, although obviously for the sake of my waist it is better to only stick to be slice per day at the very least!
So do you make time for a little elevenses each day? I don’t make a conscious decision to have a snack at 11 o’clock everyday but as I usually feel a bit peckish around that time, usually from having been up since the crack of dawn (oh the joys of motherhood!), so I will have a nibble of something sweet to keep me going until lunchtime. My favourite elevenses snack would be a slice of (homemade) cake – I don’t really mind which flavour but for the purpose of this feature I made a chocolate sponge and this is how I did it
So now I have told you my perfect elevenses heaven why not tell me yours? In doing so you could win yourself a full set of Anchor Memorabillia! GIVE AWAY
The set contains everything you need to embrace some elevenses yourself and inspire you to get creative in your kitchen and maybe even make your favourite mid morning treat yourself ! It includes an apron, a cake stand, egg cups, a butter dish and tea towels – ideal!
