So it seems Madeira cake is the way to go for a celebration cake...

Thank you. I'm slightly nervous I've bitten off more than I can chew doing this, but it's the thought that counts right, not the state of the pile of cake and icing vaguely resembling an angry bird that you end up with right?! grin I shall give your recipe a whirl, thanks again.

I usually do 3 medium eggs. 175g butter and sugar, 250g self raising flour, 3 tablespoons of milk, and I tend to replace the lemon rind with vanilla extract. That recipe always works great for cakes that need to be cut, still moist but not too crumbly to cut.

... but what's the best recipe for one? Hoping to make a round angry birds cake made from 2 cakes baked in one of Lakeland's hemisphere tins and then put together for my son's 5th birthday. Thank you oh wise ones!
