    Thats not cake though... cake is not meant to be dry and crumbly But I guess you know that now LOL!

    Don't worry I grew up in a household with microwave cakes *shudder* And I didn't know what buttercream was till I made it myself.

    But yay for being able to make lots of yummy things!

    That is a great recipe- I have made them a number of times. Did you get the recipe from the Crabapple Bakery Cookbook? I don't love all the recipes in there but this Vanilla one is easily the best vanilla cupcake recipe that I have made. I halve the icing and palette it on rather than swirling it on as the 8 cups allows you to do. I might just make these tomorrow- thanks for reminding me!

    I'm not sure .... I would imagine you could as thats what baking powder does to plain flour...

    Give it a go - can't hurt

    Actually I have only ever used SR flour with them. I never use plain when it is used with a raising agent- that's why I buy SR flour!! So yes, it works beautifully. And the 24 that it makes are large muffin sized ones, not patty cake size from our childhood!

    bake for 35mins until a skewer comes out clean.

    If you don't want to do it as a layer cake just bake 2 cakes :-) - you can freeze the uniced cake...
    Does the ingredients in the first post make two 20cm cakes? Or do you have to do a double batch?

    I was thinking of halving the cake mix batch and icing it on top? So I would halve the recipe you gave to make one 20cm cake right?

    am I making any sense?

    yep your right on track the mix makes 2 x 20cm cakes
    So halving it will work in theory

    Will it make much of a difference if i use salted butter, as I haven't any blocks of the unsalted?

    ok, thanks
    I have to make about 4 dozen for my dd's class tomorrow - they're doing an RSPCA cupcake fundraiser. (by the sounds of it I might have to make extra to keep at home - i can't wait to taste them!)
