Love Cakes

Happy Valentine's Day :)
To my husband. My love.
And to my parents who also celebrate their 33rd engagement anniversary today.
Recipe:
110 g butter, softened at room temperature 
110 g caster sugar 
2 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla extract 
2 tbsp red colouring 
110 g flour 
2 tsp baking powder 
2 tbsp milk 
  • Cream butter and caster sugar till pale. 
  • Beat in eggs one at a time. 
  • Stir in vanilla extract and red food colouring. 
  • Fold in the flour and baking powder, adding the milk till the batter is of folding consistency. 
  •  Bake in oven at 180C for about 20-25 minutes, or until the top turns golden brown. Tip: You will know when your cake is ready when you poke a toothpick in and it comes out clean. 
  • Cool the cake on a wire rack. Once cooled take it out of the pan and slice the cake about 1cm thick. Take a heart shaped cookie cutter and cut of the hearts. 
  • Place either one on top of the other, stacking three of them like I did. Or simply lay them out on a plate. You can also choose to add buttercream in between cake layers. 
 Have fun baking! Let me know how it goes.
