    • How to make it?

      Preparation: 60 minutes
      Bake time: 20-25 minutes
      Serves: 12 adults (or 24 children)

      You’ll need

      4 medium eggs
      1 tsp water /milk
      60ml milk
      500g butter
      18cm/20cm Tins

      Method

      1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan /gas mark 4. Grease and line 4 round tins. If you don’t have 4 tins you can bake in batches.

      2. In a mixing bowl, combine 60g of soft butter with the first cake layer bag until it forms a crumb consistency. Add 1 egg and 15ml of milk and mix until smooth and creamy. Pour the mixture into one of your prepared tins and smooth out.

      3. Repeat step 2 with the other 3 cake layer bags, using a clean bowl and a new prepared baking tin each time.

      4. Bake the sponges for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer or knife comes out clean when inserted into the centre. Leave in the tins for 10 minutes then remove and place on a wire rack to cool fully. The outside of the sponges will darken as they bake, but once cut the colours will show through. All our colours are natural, so there may be a little variance from batch to batch.

      5. In a large bowl cream 260g of soft butter until smooth. Add the icing sugar bag gradually and mix well. If you’re using a plain or chocolate buttercream, then add 1 tsp of milk or water to your buttercream and mix until smooth.

      6. If you are using a coloured buttercream, empty the colouring sachet into a small bowl and mix with 1 tsp of water until you have smooth paste. The shade of your buttercream will depend on how much colour paste you add. We suggest you gradually add a few drops at a time, mixing the buttercream after each addition. When you have reached your desired shade you can begin icing your cake.

      7. Place a small amount of buttercream in the centre of a cake board or plate and lay your base layer on top, pushing down lightly to secure in place. Spoon around 4 tbsp of the icing onto the cake and spread evenly to the edges. Place the second sponge on top. Continue alternating layers of icing and cake, using your other two chosen cake layers.

      8. Use the remaining icing to cover the top and sides of the cake, using the flat edge of a knife to smooth the surface. Decorate with your chosen sprinkles.

      Top tip: To get a really crisp finish to your buttercream apply what is known as a “crumb coat”. In step 8, apply a very thin layer to the top and sides and then refrigerate the cake for about 20 mins to firm up the buttercream. Remove from the fridge and apply the remainder of the buttercream to the top and sides.
