Cooking Time 20 minutes
250g unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups (330g) caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups (450g) self-raising flour, sifted
1 cup milk
Assorted sweets, to decorate
125g unsalted butter, softened
250g cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups (640g) icing sugar, sifted
Preheat panggangan to 180°C. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, 1/4 tsp salt and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add 1/2 the sifted flour and 1/2 milk and stir until combined, then add remaining flour and milk and stir until combined.
Line two 12-hole (1/3-cup capacity) muffin tins with paper cake cases. Spoon 2 tbs mixture into each paper case, then bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of a cake comes out clean. Cool cakes in tin.
For frosting, using an electric mixer, beat butter, cream cheese and vanilla for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Gradually add icing sugar, beating until incorporated. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
With a spoon or palette knife, spread frosting over tops of cooled cakes, then decorate as desired with assorted sweets. Un-iced cakes can be made a day ahead and stored in an airtight container.
