    1. Clear and clean your work surface before you begin! You need to work quickly, so you don't want things in your way.
    2. Gather all your ingredients and utensils and preheat your oven to 180C. It must be up to temperature when you put your cakes in so it cooks well.
    3. Line your sponge tins by putting a circle of greaseproof paper in the base and then grease the sides.
    4. 4 Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Cream simply means mix with a wooden spoon until every grain of sugar is coated with the mixture
    5. Break one of the eggs into the mixture and beat it in using your wooden spoon. Beating means mixing vigorously to get air into the cake. Stop when all the egg is incorporated and the mixture has stiffened up
