You Will Need:

8 oz  Self Raising Flour,

8oz Butter Cut into cubes

8oz Caster Sugar

4 medium eggs

1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

 

Method:

Cream together the Butter and Sugar  till light and fluffy, add in the vanilla extract Gradually add the flour and last but not least add the eggs. split into two  9 inch cake tins and  bake at 180C for approximately 15mins or until they look risen and if you  put a skewer into the middle it should come out clean. Turn out onto a baking tray and leave to cool

Then you Will Need:

Jam, Pre rolled icing and a ribbon if desired

cover one half of the cake in jam and sandwich the other on top you may also add some butter cream (icing sugar vanilla essence and butter) then sandwich the two cakes together.  Roll out enough icing  to cover the cake and transfer it onto the cake make sure theres no holes.

You may make some royal icing to pipe  a message onto the cake or some trims like i did. for that just add 2 egg whites with enough icing sugar to form a stiff  pipeable paste

Voila a nice easy birthday cake in less than an hour 😛
