Accessories you need



This recipe makes quite a large quantity of cake batter. The mixture appears quite runny; however, do not worry it cooks beautifully!

This cake really suits any occasion! I love to use it for birthday/baby shower cakes as it is always a crowd pleaser. 

It freezes VERY well. So you can make in advance. 

It is delicious with buttercream, fondant, ganache or even just sprinkled with icing sugar.  

The 1st picture is iced with the buttercream made from the recipe chip. (I doubled the quantity - this freezes well too if you make too much). Another tip for this buttercream is to add a dash of coconut essence also.
