And you can have any shape you like!
…With a pair of scissors!
The basis of the cream cake is a simple Swiss Roll recipe:
150g sugar (2/3 cups; 1 1/2 dl)
95g flour (3/4 cups and 1tbsp; 2 dl)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp water (can be exchanged for orange juice; lemon juice; coffee; etc)
(2 tbsp cocoa powder – optional)
double cream whipped, to cover the whole cake (3 dl)
1 mashed banana (and a few drops of lemon, so it keeps it’s colour). You can also mix the banana with a little cold custard or vanilla sauce.
Condensed milk toffee
And for the decoration, whatever you like. Some ideas:
Raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, cherries…
Hundreds and thousands
I love that Miss 3 and Miss 6 made their little brother’s first birthday cake. They were pleased as punch with themselves. Taking turns to mix, add ingredients, cut out number ‘1’s, spread filling on the layers and ‘build’ the cake. And between the five of us, we ate it all up too!
