Tim's birthday cake

G made a sweetie cake for my husband's birthday.
  •  200g butter
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • milk
  • 125g m and ms

First beat the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Then add then eggs, one at a time with a tablespoon of the flour each time. Fold in remaining flour and baking powder. Add some milk until the mixture is at a dropping consistency. Crush up the m and ms with a rolling pin and add to cake mixture.

Divide the batter between 2 greased and lined 20cm cake tins and bake at 160oC for about 20 minutes.

Turn out and leave to cool.

Make some butter icing (200g butter and 250g icing sugar).  Add some to the bottom layer and place second layer on top. Then add some to the middle with some sweets (we used Liquorice allsorts) and then pipe some swirls.
