Birthday Delights - Raspberry and Cream Cake...



Yesterday I had a fabulous day celebrating a dear friends Birthday!
My friend Lauryn has been such an Angel to my family and I am truly blessed to have her in my life!! So I spoilt her the best way I know how, with a fabulous summery raspberry and cream Birthday Cake!!




Ingredients

175g unsalted butter
175g golden caster sugar
3 medium eggs
175g self raising flour
1 small can of raspberries in syrup
300ml double cream
1 tbsp valilla extract
a little icing sugar
Handful of raspberries to decorate

I then halved the cake recipe for a 3rd layer

Method

1. Grease two 18cm tins and preheat the oven to 160 C fan assisted.
2. Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy and then add the eggs one egg at a time, beating after each one. If it looks like it is starting to curdle add a little of the flour.
3. Once mixed fold in the flour.
4. Divide between the greased tins and pop in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes until they are risen and spring back to the touch. leave to cool in their tins for 5 minutes then turn out and leave to cool completely.
5. While you are waiting for the cakes to cool, beat your cream with the vanilla until firm but still light and spreadable. You can add a little icing sugar/caster sugar if you like, about a tbsp.
6. Once cooled lightly brush your cakes with the raspberry syrup and then spoon on the soft raspberries and vanilla cream. Sandwich them together and then dust with icing sugar. Decorate with fresh raspberries.

This cake is truly scrumptious and a perfect summery indulgent treat for any Birthday girl!



Happy Birthday Lauryn!
