Gold bling cake!

So a while back me and my cousin made this cake. Sorry it took so long to upload it, the photos were on my old computer and i only just transferred them. Anyway, i will say no more, i think the cake speaks for itself!

It has 6 layers!

To make it you will need:

12 ounces flour
12 ounces marg
12 ounces sugar
6 eggs
blue ( or a different colour if you want) food colouring
12 ounces flour ( take about 3 tablespoons out and replace with cocoa powder, more if you want a really strong chocolate flavour.)
12 ounces marg
12 ounces suagr
6 eggs

Just a few ingredients then!

You'll need to make the two different mixtures in different bowls you can either

 a.) put all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk. i.e the method you use when you can't be bothered or are in a rush or just like to make things easy.

b. ) cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add one egg and a teaspoon of flour and whisk until all the ingredients are used.

Spoon the mixture into different round cake tins but if you don't have enough, which we didn't, you will have to put them in the oven at different times.Annoying i know. Bake for 25-35 minutes at 180°c or until a wooden skewer comes out of the cake clean.

After the cake has cooled level the off with a knife and eat the waste cake :D Layer the cake with Better Crockers "Chocolate fudge frosting" and then cover the outside of the cake. and then for the fun bit.
Spray the whole cake with Dr Oetker gold shimmer spray and the eat a slice.
