About this recipe: This is a simple but fun recipe which works very well for new bakers but also experienced bakers. I used it for a family members 40th birthday and all went down well. I would recommend this to anybody. You could also turn the recipe into cupcakes .
Line two 12-hole muffin tins with paper cases. Fill only two-thirds full with the cake mixture to allow for a good rise. Baking time will be reduced to 10 to 15 minutes, ready when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool before decorating.
Use 4 to 5 of your favourite sweets such as chocolate buttons, jelly beans or Smarties®!
As a guide for a cake of this size, we would suggest: 80g butter at room temperature, 170g icing sugar, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon of milk, if needed.
