Ingredients

225 g (8 oz) soya margarine
225 g (8 oz) caster sugar
175 g (6 oz) self raising flour
50 g (2 oz) carob powder
4 eggs

Butter Icing:
50 g (2 oz) soya margarine
100 g (4 oz) icing sugar
50 g (2 oz) carob powder

Method

  • Pre-heat the oven to 190°C / 375°F / Gas 5.
  • Prepare two 18 cm (7") sponge cake tins.
  • Beat the margarine and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until creamy and paler in colour.
  • Add the eggs, flour and carob powder and beat well together.
  • Divide the mixture between the cake tins and even out.
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for about 25 minutes.
  • To test if the cake is cooked gently touch the top of the cake with your finger if it is cooked it will spring back when you remove your finger.
  • Leave to cool for 10minutes.
  • Then place the cakes onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Cut the cake in half and sandwich them together using butter icing.

Butter Icing:

  • Cream the soya margarine until pale in colour.
  • Mix the carob powder and icing sugar together and mix into the margarine until thick and creamy.
  • Use the butter icing to sandwich the cake together.

If you want to decorate the cake I found a hedgehog or butterfly quite easy to do.
