You will also need…

20cm (8in) square cake tin, lined with baking parchment

Step 1 of 4

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.

Step 2 of 4

Put the cake ingredients in a bowl and beat (use an electric hand mixer if you have one!) until light and creamy.

Step 3 of 4

Spoon the mixture into the tin and spread out. Bake for about 30-35 (40-45) minutes until springy and cooked in the centre. Cool slightly then lift out onto a cake rack.

Step 4 of 4

When cool, make the chocolate glaze. Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a bowl with the evaporated milk. Melt gently in the microwave then stir in the buttery baking spread. Set aside at room temperature for 10-15 minutes to thicken up before spreading over the cake. Top with the chocolate, candles and decorations!

Look out for other fun ways to decorate your cake – try edible glitter, sugar shapes or sprinkles or just cover the top in chopped strawberries and serve as dessert!
