Mini Celebration Cakes



Makes: 5 cakes 

Hands-on time: 30 minutes 

Hands-off time: 2 hours


INGREDIENTS

¾ cup (180g) Stork Baking Margarine Yellow Margarine

1 box (620g) store-bought vanilla cake mix 

3 large eggs

½ cup (120g) Stork White Margarine For Baking and Icing, at room temperature

1 packet (280g) vanilla icing kit

Food colouring of choice 


Serving suggestion:

Edible flowers 

Tea


For the sponge cake: 

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a square 35x35cm baking tray with baking paper. 

2. Add the Stork Baking Margarine Yellow Margarine into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute until the margarine is completely melted. 

3. Add the cake mix, eggs and 1 cup of hot 

water to the bowl. Use a hand whisk to whisk the mixture until smooth. *Chef’s Tip: Any flavour of cake mix can be used!  

4. Pour the cake batter into the prepared tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. When baked, remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes. 

For the icing: 

5. Add the Stork White Margarine For Baking and Icing, store-bought icing kit and 2 tablespoons of water to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Beat, using an electric beater, for 5 minutes until smooth. Divide the icing into 4 bowls. Keep 1 portion of the icing white, then colour the other 3 bowls of icing with your food colouring of choice. 

To assemble: 

6. Use an 8cm cookie cutter or glass to cut 10 round disks from the cooled sheet cake. Arrange the disks onto a clean cutting board. 

7. Spread a layer of icing onto 5 of the disks before topping with the second layer of sponge. Spread a thin layer of icing over the cakes and refrigerate for 10 minutes. *Chef’s Tip: The cake offcuts can be frozen or made into cake pops. 7.

8. After 10 minutes, organically smear the final layer of icing over the mini cakes using the back of a spoon or spatula. Decorate with fresh edible flowers and refrigerate for 1 hour or until ready to serve. *Chef’s Tip: The cakes can be decorated in any way you prefer.  

9. Remove the cakes from the fridge, serve the cakes with a cup of tea and ENJOY!
