Eid Cake

I made this cake last year on Eid,and it was so beautiful and delicious that everyone loved it.the ingredients and method is very simple and easy to adopt.sharing this beautiful cake with you; enjoy :)

2 cups Butter
2 cups Sugar
1-1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
6 Eggs
2 cups Flour
5 Cocoa powder
2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 cup Milk

Whipped cream 400g
Icing Sugar 1cup
Chocolate Cigars for decoration

Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Beat butter, sugar and vanilla till it becomes light and fluffy.
In a seperate bowl sift flour and baking powder and set aside. Then, sift cocoa powder and add to butter mix.
Beat eggs till light and fluffy and add egg mixture to the butter mixture and beat well.
Fold in the sifted flour and baking powder gently using a spatula. Pour mixture into two 8 inches sandwich pans which has been greased and floured. Bake on 180 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove and cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing from pan and leaving on a rack to cool completely.

Whip the cream and icing sugar well until thick,

Put icing on top of one of the cakes, then add second cake and cover top and sides of both cakes. Place chocolate cigars round the whole cake that it cover it..

*you can use 1 large 8 inch cake tin and once cake has cooled, slice cake in half. This may take longer to cook so check by placing a skewer in the centre of cake after 40 mins - if skewer is clean it's ready, if comes out with some mix in it, give it another 5 mins and check again.
