Got this out a cake decorating mag but not tried it yet. makes a 6in round

200g sweetened condensed milk
140g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
60ml melted butter or 60ml margarine
1 tsp vanilla essence
75ml water

sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda together. mix flour flour mixture, condensed milk, melted butter, essence and water, beat well.
Bake in oven at 200 degrees C for 10 mins then reduce temp to 150 degrees C and bake for a further 10 mins
Cake is ready when it leaves the sides of tin and is springy to touch



Thanks so much for the egg free sponge recipe, i actually thought it smelled awful (didnt taste it) but the customer was very happy, her boyfriend can never usually eat cake!! she commissioned another for the following weekend too!
I now have a wheat free cake to do for friday (too bust so little girls mum buying a ready made cake & I am decorating it, which I dont usually do but this is an exceptional case) little girl will be 13 and has never had a decorated birthday cake because she is allergic to wheat!!


Funnily enough there was also a gluten free recipe in the magazine as well

A questions to users of those heavy duty stacked cake transport boxes like these http://design-a-cake.co.uk/View/details.asp?pi=3447#top. Are these reusable? I assume so because they are quite pricey for single use, no?

Hi, I use lot of those stacked cake boxes. but I don't buy them Design a cake. I buy them from Almond Art. There are deals too. And they are much cheaper. When I give a quotation for the customer, I specialy add the price for the box as I don't take it back. Here is the link,

thanks for the link bashini, i had a look and they are cheaper, but i don't think they are same, so do they work the same though, i suppose that is what's important. in the ones at design a cake, they have inserts so that the cake sits within it and doesn't move around, also they have holes for your hands to carry them - I can't seem to see how you would carry the almond art ones?
post #2255 of 17866
I have had both like bashini I use the almond art one because its hard to get boxes back. I did buy the one from design a cake for my daughters 18th and it is in my cupboard packed away ready to reuse. You are right there is an inset for the cake to sit in as well. However with almond art I just make sure my cakeboard is the same size as box I'm using so it does not slip and I carry them underneath.

I know that Almond Art boxes don't have inserts and handls. But I also do as same as what jillyscakes does. And I trasport my cakes in the boot and I put a non slip mat under the box. icon_smile.gif

Can anyone tell me how they stick their ribbon to cakes? I usually use a dab of royal icing, but have always found it soaks through & stains the ribbon slightly. Have a wedding cake to make foe september that has a double band of ribbon round it & dont want any marks, any suggestions? Thanks

Hi Hailinguk, nice to see you here after a LONG time! Hope you are doing fine! icon_biggrin.gif

sanmarco5, I use doublesided sticky tape to attach the ribbon around the cake as well as the edge of the cake board.

First take one end of the ribbon and secure with a pin to the cake and stick a tiny peice of sticky tape on that end. Then take the ribbon around the cake and stick it where the sticky tape is. Then cut the excess ribbon. Or you can premaesure the ribbon you need and do the same. Hope it make sence. icon_smile.gif
