I am baking my sons birthday cake, and have only gt plain flour for a victoria sponge. I know i need self raising but too late for that. Can't leave the kids home alone and pop to 24 hour tesco.....so..... i don't have any baking powder either, shouldi just makesure i fold plenty of air into it, or am i buggered???
As I thought, they mostly need flour and raising agent apart from ones that say bicarb of soda but sorry its really late and I need to fall into bed as the dc's have settled at a reasonable time for once!
Have you a big tub of icecream in the freezer? If so whip it out, up end it on a plate or tray and decorate with whatever you have got (crushed flake, smarties, fruit)Back in freezer as quick as you can. Ice cream cake beats sponge cake hands down.
DS1 loved a trip like that... we went to the local sweetie shop and he was allowed to buy lots of different penny sweets, when the cake was cooked I made up icing in bright colours and he poured it on and decorated it with as many sweets as he could fit.
