Ingredients

  • Cake-
  • 150g of raising flour
  • 150g of Extra Light Flora (now It says not to bake with it but this recipe loves it, it makes it moist and low on the fat!)
  • 2 eggs
  • Vanilla essence ( 2 caps)
  • 150g white sugar
  • Filling-
  • 2 egg whites
  • 200g of icing sugar
  • drops of lilac food colouring ( or preferred colouring! )
  • Decoration-
  • Sheet of icing
  • icing sugar (for dusting)
  • Lilac sugar
  • sugar Butterfly's (Mine are from sainsburys)

Method

    1. Preheat oven to 200C and grease and flour a small baking tin.
    2. Whisk all cake ingredients together and spoon into the baking tin. Cook for 200c for 20-25 minutes however you may need 5-10 minutes longer depending on your oven.
    3. Meanwhile Whisk two egg whites ( I used pasteurised) add in the weighed icing sugar and then add the food colouring. Leave aside in a bowl in the fridge.
    4. When the cake is cooled and out of the oven. Cut in half and spoon in the mixture saving 2 tablespoons of it.
    5. Roll out your icing and paint with the left over purple royal icing and cover the cake.
    6. Stick the butterfly's and sugar on using a pastry brush and a watery mixture of icing sugar and water.
    7. Then lay back and let family and friends enjoy your cooking.
