This is my first ever wedding cake, made for my best friends who are portal mad!
Step 1: Top Tier
As guests at this wedding were fussy, i made a basic sponge mixture for the cupcakes, and the main cake on the top tier as follows:
Top Tier - Weighed Companion Cube
1 - Mix 12oz of unsalted softened butter with 12oz of caster sugar. Beat together until all the butter is creamed together with the sugar. For best results use a electric hand mixer.
2 - Sift 12 oz of self raising flour into a separate bowl.
3 - Add one egg to the butter and sugar mixture, and a spoonful of the sifted flour, and mix until fully incorporated.
4 - Do this until you have added a total of 6 standard size eggs to the cake mix. Now add the rest of the flour, mixing well.
5 - one the whole mixture looks tasty and creamy, add 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence, and mix one final last time.
6 - Grease and line square 9" cake tin
7 - put cake into preheated oven at 175C for 1hour - 1h 30mins.
8- check cake is cooked by inserting a metal skewer into the center of the cake - if it comes away clean, then cake is done, if not leave for a few minutes longer.
9 - When cake is done, leave to cool for 30 mins in tin, then turn out to cool on a wire cooling rack.
