Picture of the Day 15.07.16 - Colourful Cakes and Cake Recipe

Fashionista knew I would be a little sad that she couldn't come to my Eid party last week.  She is the furthest away of my sisters and the one I get to see the least, although we have our daily WhatsApp conversations and pics of my beautiful niece alhamdulillah.  She had a prior booking with her husband who does everything for everyone and never asks for anything in return.  Because of this I could not begrudge their family day, especially knowing he would have cancelled his plans if he knew I was disappointed.

Being a smart girl, she visited me the day before the party with her little girl to hang out and brought along the next best thing to her: cakes for the party to match our colour scheme:

The cakes were so pretty to look at:

The best thing was they tasted amazing too  - soft cake and mouthwatering icing, they went down a treat at the party. Everybody was asking for the recipe, which Fashionista was kind enough to share and I have posted here because someone left a comment requesting it:

220g sugar
220g butter
220g self-raising flour
4 eggs
Tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp. milk
Preheat oven at gas mark 4, cook for about 20 mins or until top is golden brown

Buttercream is 250g butter and 500g icing sugar
