So I of course went on Pinterest when planning small one’s
I found this super amazing polka dot cake and decided to adapt it for my own evil purposes.
There are CASTLES hidden inside.
With my every helpful sous chef (who now refuses to take off her ballet costume for love nor money) I made the cake the night before her party.
Cream together; 2 cups butter, 6 cups sugar and 4 tsp vanilla.
Add 8 eggs.
Stir in 10 cups flour, 8 tsp baking powder and 4 cups milk.
Take 1/3 of the batter and tint with food colouring to the shade of pink that you’d like.
Pour into the shape that you’d like to hide inside the cake.
Cover with the remaining batter and bake at 330 until a skewer comes away clean (approx. 20 minutes).
Don’t worry about trimming the edges.
Just for selfish reasons I made my favourite icing.
My Gran’s 7 minute (just triple the recipe for this cake) and tinted it pink.
