Products Used: Forever Sharp Knife & Mr. Whipstir Whisk




  • 210 grams plain flour
  • 1½ tsps baking powder
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 125 ml milk (at room temp.)
  • 226 grams unsalted butter (soft)
  • 360 grams granulated sugar
  • 1½ tbps vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs (at room temp.)
  • 2 large egg yolks (at room temp.)


  • 397g Carnation Caramel



  1. Pre heat your oven to 180 °C and grease a cake proof tin (you can also split this into two tins and skip one of the steps)
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt together in a medium sized bowl.
  3. In a separate large bowl whip the butter until soft and creamy, add the sugar and blend together until lightened in both texture and colour.
  4. Add in each egg separatly and mix one by one until smooth. Then add the two yolks individually and mix with a soft spatula or whisk. With the final step being the vanilla extract.
  5. Then add the dry ingredients to the mix 1/3 at a time, whisk ingredients together until light. After the second mix, add in the milk and blend before adding the final 1/3 of the flour, completely mixing the cake batter until you are happy.
  6. Pour cake mix into your your desired tin(s) and bake for 25 minutes (you may need longer if you’re only using one tin)
  7. Take out cake and leave to cool. Once ready place on a tray and slice the cake in half. (skip this step if you are using two tins)
  8. Layer the inside with your caramel icing. Place the two pieces together and pour the remaining icing over the top of your cake.
  9. Cut your delicious piece of cake into slices and eat it 😋
