Ingredients (serves 1)

Melted butter, to grease
60g butter, at room temperature
140g (2/3 cup) caster sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
125ml (1/2 cup) milk
150g (1 cup) icing sugar mixture
25g butter, extra, at room temperature
1 tbs hot water
2 drops pink food colouring
Sugar flowers, to decorate
Queen Writing Fudge White Chocolate, to decorate


Preheat oven to 180C. Brush a heart-shaped 17cm (base measurement across the widest part), 4-cup capacity cake pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base with non-stick baking paper.
Use an electric beater to beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat until combined.
Sift the flour over the egg mixture and add the milk. Use a large metal spoon to fold until well combined.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan. Use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 minutes to cool before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Sift the icing sugar into a medium bowl. Add the butter and water, and stir until well combined and smooth. Add the food colouring and stir until well combined. Spoon the icing onto the centre of cake and spread to the edge, allowing a little to run over the side. Arrange the flowers on top of the cake. Use the writing fudge to write "Mum" in the centre. Set aside until the icing is set.

Happy mothers day everyone!!!
