What size tin? - 27 Mar 2014


Don't beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla and eggs at once as this will split the mix. Although the flour will bring it back together if a cake mix splits to far, which it will in this case, the texture is affected and the quality of your cake lowers. - 17 May 2012


me and my bestfreind made this cherry cake and it was phenominal! we added a pink fondant on the top, decorated it with spots and stripes and sold the cake for £60 at a cake sale. Thank you so much for putting this recipe up because without this we wouldn't have been able to do this. - 08 Jan 2014
