- 4OZ Self Raising Flour
- 4OZ Butter
- 4OZ Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- Vanilla Essence
- Icing Sugar
- Peppermint Essence
- Blue food colouring.
Place the mixture into a pre-greased (Get some butter on a small piece of paper and smear it on the inside of the tin.) baking/cake tin and place in a pre-heated oven and bake until risen. (Use a knife to test to see if it is done.)
To make the buttercream, add butter (As much, or as little. Whatever is needed. )to a bowl and keep adding icing sugar, mixing until firm. (There should be more icing sugar than butter.) Add the peppermint essence to taste. Then add the blue food colouring and a small amount of cocoa powder to create the 'cement look'.
After your cake is ready, slice it in half and spread the buttercream generously.
NOTE: Make sure that the cake is cold before you add the buttercream to the middle.
