White Chocolate & Vanilla Cake

My friend was coming to visit me at Uni so I said I had to make a cake, after all it had been a while seen he’d had one. The combination of white chocolate and vanilla came to mind, and there and then I set out to write the recipe. There’s nothing special about the recipe but it’s all in the presentation, I always think iced cakes look that bit more exquisite than plain ones – not to say they always taste better =P I have a few tips that’ll make this cake come out even easier than it appears: make in two batches and bake for 20-25 minutes if you only have one tin! Before icing the cake completely, spread the top and sides with a thin layer of frosting (like buttering bread) to prevent crumbs appearing on the surface, then cover with a thicker layer. If you prefer a firmer sponge, like me, try replacing 100g of the self-raising flour with plain flour. Easy! Click here for the recipe
