MAKE BATTER MIX

  • Pre heat the oven to 170°C    330°F

 

  • Prepare 2 cup cake trays with paper or silicone liners

or

  • grease and dust with flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

 

  • In a bowl, mix flour,  and the dry ingredients  until well blended.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, until all the mix is combined.
  • Add only enough milk to make a runny batter

BAKE CAKE

  • Divide the batter mix between the prepared liners or cake pans.

Bake until the tops are springy when touched and when a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean –

  • about 18- 20 minutes for cup cakes
  • about 25 to 30 minutes for a big cake

 

Cool cakes in pans for 5 minutes then turn out onto cooling racks and cool completely.

If you are going to freeze – do it as soon as possible – like  within 10 minutes!

TOP OFF

  • Beat / whisk the cream cheese until creamy – about 1 minute.
  • Add and beat / whisk the powdered sugar, a 1/4 cup at a time until fluffy.
  • Add beat / whisk in cream to the frosting mix – about 1 minute.
  • Chill until ready to frost cake.

 

When the cake layers are completely cool, frost the top of one cake layer, place the other cake layer on top.

Decoratively swirl the top of the cake with remaining frosting, leaving the sides unfrosted. Decorate with pecan or wall nuts if you wish

To be fancy you could decorate with mandarin oranges to give a dolphin leaping effect!
