So I was quite looking forward to today’s theme as baking is one of the things I am slightly partial to in my spare time.
Today I have decided to not just have one picture, although I hope the final one looks quite good… but a series of them, along with the ‘recipe’ and step by step guide. I have to admit I’ve cheated slightly here…
What I Used
– Tesco Value Sponge Mix = 22p
– 1 Medium Egg = 15p approx
– 75ml Water
– Some Icing Sugar (I didn’t measure)
– Some More Water (3 table spoons)
– 2 Cake Trays
– 24 Cake Cases
– Hundreds and Thousands
What To Do
Preheat your oven to 200* and get your cake tin and cases ready
Empty the contents of the mix into a bowl and add an egg and 50ml of water
Mix this all together until it’s smooth, then add another 25ml of water and mix again. It should look like this once done, slightly runny
I then poured the mixture into a measuring jug because it makes pouring it into the cases so much easier! And voila.
Place your cakes into the oven and leave them for 15-20 minutes until they turn golden brown in colour.
Once done leave them on a cooling rack while you make the icing, simply mix some icing sugar with some water until you get the desired texture. NB you won’t need much water at all.
Ok, so my icing maybe ended up slightly runnier than I had aimed for so I have had to alter my plan and have gone for the ‘drizzled’ icing look and this is the final result
Not the prettiest cakes I’ve ever made it has to be said but the truth is in the pudding as the saying goes, and on this front the stand up and yep they taste a look better than they look!
Now tomorrow’s theme is collection so we shall see how that turns out…
