It's a bit ambitious posting this while the cake is baking, but I'm hoping it will rise enough to cut in two to put buttercream in the middle!

I did the 6oz of everything and 3 eggs recipe for a sponge cake and put it in a 8 inch sandwich tin, so here's hoping...

Anyway, I think it's just butter and caster sugar, is that right? Also not sure of quantity.

Thank you

Yes, although you could use icing sugar, which would be easier. Just add it to butter until it tastes nice.

icing sugar better as you don't get the grittiness.

standard recipe is 2x icing sugar to 1x butter (or marg at Hotel Sinclair, taste disguised with a drop of vanilla essence) Use an electric beater if you are making a lot - much easier
