Baking | Vanilla Sprinkle Cake

Hello Lovelies,
It's been a while since I've done any baking, I've just got out the way of it but got my baking mojo back at the weekend and made this cake. I'm not overly pleased with it but thought I would share it with you all anyway as you may be able to do better than me !
You Will Need:

6 Large Eggs
350g Self-Raising Flour
350g Caster Sugar
350g Softened Butter (unsalted)
3 tsp Baking Powder
2tsps Vanilla Extract

300g butter
1200g Icing Sugar

How to make:1) Set your oven to 180C, Gas 4 and grease your cake tins

2) Beat together eggs, flour, caster sugar, butter and baking powder in a large bowl until smooth

3) Distribute evenly between 4 cake tins (or 2 at a time) and bake for around 15-20mins

4) Leave to cool completely before icing

5) to make the icing, cream together the butter and icing sugar bit by bit as there is a lot of it!
6) I split some of the icing out for spreading throughout the middle and added sprinkles. Once all layers are put together, you can ice around the whole cake by using a spatula - a cake smoother is probably a lot easier which I will get for next time. Then pipe some design to the top and bottom and add sprinkles.

Let me know what you think - I'm going to keep practicing to improve for next time.

Love Gill x
