4 eggs beaten
2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
2 cups caster sugar
2tsp baking powder
1/2 cup water
Preheat the oven to 180
Grease and line a rectangular tray bake tin
Cream the marg/butter and sugar together until pale.
Then mix in the oil, milk, water and eggs until well mixed.
In a seperate bowl sift the flour, baking powder and add the salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mix, stirring well in between each addition.
Once mixed pour into the lined tin and make sure mixture is spread out evenly.
Place in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes.
For the topping make buuter icing and colour with green food colouring. Spread evenly over the cake. Add green food colouring to the coconut and sprinkle on the top of the cake.
I then used a pre mixed icing tube of blue icing to draw out the football pitch.
To make it a chocolate cake simply add 2 tbsp to the flour mixture.
