Preparation Time 45 minutes
Cooking Time 60 minutes
Ingredients (serves 16)
Melted butter, to grease
250g butter, at room temperature
215g (1 cup) caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
300g (2 cups) self-raising flour
125g (1/2 cup) sour cream
2-3 drops pink liquid food colouring
2 tbs cocoa powder
1 tbs milk
Mixed lollies, such as Smarties, M&Ms, jelly beans and mints, to decorate
125g butter, at room temperature
2 tbs milk
230g (1 1/2 cups) icing sugar mixture
Preheat panggangan to 180°C. Brush a round 20cm (base measurement) cake pan with melted butter to grease. Line the base and side with non-stick baking paper.
Use an electric beater to beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until combined. Add half the flour to the butter mixture and stir until just combined. Add the sour cream and remaining flour, in batches, and stir until just combined. Divide the batter among 3 bowls. Add a few drops of pink food colouring to 1 portion and stir to combine. Combine the cocoa powder and milk in a small bowl and add to another portion of batter. Stir to combine.
Place alternate spoonfuls of the 3 batters into the prepared pan. Use a spoon to swirl the colours together to create a marble effect. Use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
To make the frosting, place the butter in a bowl and use electric beaters to beat until very pale. Add the milk and icing sugar and beat until combined.
Place the cake on a cake stand. Spread over frosting and decorate with lollies.
