Makes 2 x 6 inch / 15cm cake tins ( mine are from Aldi). Lined with baking paper and sprayed or buttered. Oven temerature approx 170C or 375F
Put the first 5 ingredients into a medium pot big enough to hold all the ingredients, heat and stir till just melted. Take off the heat and cool.
Once cool enough add the eggs straight into the pot and mix in well. Add the sifted flour and baking powder. Stir very well by hand with a whisk.
Pour into the two lined tins and bake for approximately 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean
Cool. Once cold cut off the rounded tops and split the cakes in half, making 4 equal rounds of cake .
Beat the butter first till very light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and the cream cheese and beat again till light. Add the sifted sugar and then gradually the colouring till you get the colour you want. The icing should be fluffy and light.
