SBaby Shower Summer Celebration Cakeummer Celebration (Baby Shower) Cake: This delicious cake is easy to put together to create a perfect summer showstopper …

340g butter, softened
340g caster sugar, sifted
6 eggs, at room temperature
340g self-raising flour
2 tsp baking power
2-3 tbsp milk
Oil, to grease

300ml double cream, whipped
5 tbsp wild strawberry jam
large punnet strawberries, hulled and halved

* Icing Sugar
* Sugar crystallised edible flowers (Edible flowers can be purchased online РMeadowsweet Flowers create crystallised flowers which are beautifully packaged ready for you to use at home As well as looking, they also taste amazing!)
* Miniature bunting (
For miniature bunting, attach small paper images of your choice to thread and tie to two wooden skewers)

* Heat the oven to 180oC. Lightly brush three 20cm sandwich tins with a little oil and base-line each with baking parchment.
* Cream butter and sugar together until pale, light and fluffy.
* Break eggs into a small bowl and lightly beat with fork, then gradually add to creamed butter and sugar in small amounts, beating well after each addition. (Should the mixture curdle, add 1 tbsp flour to help stabilise.)
* Sift flour and fold it gently into mixture. If necessary, add 2-3 tbsp milk.
* Divide mixture between the prepared tins and smooth tops using a spatula. Bake in middle of oven for about 20 minutes, or until well risen and golden. The cakes should feel spongy and springy when pressed gently.
* Allow cakes to cool for a few minutes in the tins, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool before peeling off the lining paper.
* When cool, sandwich cakes together with a layer of strawberry jam, followed by a layer of strawberries then the whipped cream. Leave the top sponge clear and sprinkle with icing sugar.
* Finally add your crystalised flowers and miniature bunting appropriate for the occasion. Share and enjoy.
