    4 Large Eggs

    250g The Pantry Self Raising Flour

    250g The Pantry Caster Sugar

    250g Perfect for Cakes Spread

    100g Grandessa Strawberry Jam or Chocolate & Hazelnut Spread

    3 x 450g Cake Angels Vanilla Icing

    White card for ears

    Pink Marshmallows and some Chocolate Spread for face and ears

    Icing bag with a star nozzle


    Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.

    Line the bottom of your cake tins with greaseproof paper and lightly grease the sides.

    Put the eggs, flour, caster sugar and spread in a food processor and blend until thoroughly mixed.

    Divide this mixture between the cake tins.

    Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until risen and firm to the touch.

    Allow to cool in the tins before turning out.

    If the cakes are very domed, slice the tops off to level them.

    Spread the jam or chocolate spread over the top of one of the cakes, then stack them on top of each other.

    Use some of the vanilla icing to cover the top of the cake.

    Put some in an icing bag and make swirls around the side of the cake and the edge of the top, like curly wool.

    Cut the white card to make some ears, use the marshmallows to make a nose and the chocolate spread for eyes, eyebrows and a mouth.
