Fairy Bread Cake

This cake brought me back to my primary school days... eating fairy bread at kid's parties!
I used a simple vanilla cake recipe for a nice light cake and finished with buttercream frosting and sprinkles for decoration. It's supposed to look like a giant piece of bread :D I got this idea from Raspberri cupcakes Giant fairy bread cake.

Fairy Bread Cake

1 cup caster sugar

2 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk

Buttercream frosting
40g unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup soft icing sugar
1 tbs milk

1. Preheat oven to 180oC and line a 23xcm square cake tin.
2. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla essence.
3. Add flour and baking powder and mix well. Stir in milk until mixture is smooth. Pour into prepared pan.
