  • 2 large free range eggs
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Wilton Vanilla Extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk

Step 1

Preheat oven to 200 C

Step 2

  • Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy in an electric mixer.
  • Add the Vanilla and the eggs, one at a time with a tablespoon of flour in-between each one, fold in the rest of the flour until all combined.
  • Add a little milk, as you feel needed to get a nice dropping consistency.

Step 3

  • Scrape the mixture into the cake cases and bake in the centre of the oven for approx 15-20 mins or until a light golden colour and a cake tester comes out clean.

Step 4

As soon as bearable, remove the cakes from the tin and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Step 5

Once cooled, use the Royal Icing mixture as per the instructions, adding colour and decoration as needed.
