Chocolate-iced teddy bear cake


A good one for the Districts Teddy Bear Picnic. However keep it cool as the picnic is usually happening during the hot months. The icing melts.

Ingredients:

• 125g unsalted butter, softened
• 3/4 cup caster sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 eggs
• 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
• 1/2 cup (125mL) milk
Icing (optional)
• 2 cups icing sugar
• 1/4 cup cocoa
• Coconut, smarties, writing gels to decorate
Method:
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Grease a teddy bear cake tin or silicon pan (mine is 26cm x 21cm x 4cm).
In an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until pale in color and creamy.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating for about a minute between each addition.
Add the vanilla essence and beat until combined.
Sift flour and add half to butter mixture with half the milk, mix until well combined.
Repeat with remaining flour and milk.
Pour into cake tin or silicon pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Allow to cool completely before turning onto serving plate.
To make icing, sift flour and cocoa together and add enough hot water to make a smooth icing.
Spread cake with icing and decorate with coconut on the ears, smartie buttons and writing gels to draw in features.

If it brakes just patch the cake back together with icing?
