Is there anything more nostalgic than a School Dinner Cake. That fluffy vanilla sponge topped with thick white icing and hundreds and thousands sprinkles. Drowning in custard is the best thing to finish it off.
The sponge is an all in one vanilla sponge, you add the dry ingredients, eggs, butter and milk. Mix it all together until light and fluffy and bake. It’s really as simple as that. The recipe calls for unsalted butter however it will work just as well with a baking margarine such as Stork.
The icing is super easy too. Icing sugar and water. It needs to be pretty thick though so that it stays on top of the cake. We’d recommend adding the water drop by drop to ensure you don’t add too much. Don’t worry if this happens though, you could just add a little more icing sugar until you get the right consistency. If you really want to jazz it up, why not try a flavoured icing sugar or add a little bit of flavouring.
