&nbsp;How hard could it be?<br /> Just heat 5 eggs, 500 ml of milk and some butter and about 3 cups of self raising flour. Heat at 350 degrees F and bake for about 1 hour.<br /> <br /> Set to cool and mix heated sugar, chemicals and colours to make frosting, or use store bought and lather to your wish on the cake.<br />
