Niamh-bakes-things: Easter treats

Hi all,

I thought I would share some of the sweet treats I baked for Easter this year (I know it was a few weeks ago!). This included a cake which I decorated on my own (very first cake I have every decorated, quite chuffed!) It was a lemon cake, with jam filling and butter cream icing. 
The other thing I made was sugar cookies, cut using my new egg shaped cookie cutter. I had so much fun with the food dyes!
The cake was made using my mothers trusty recipe. 7 eggs, then 14oz of caster sugar, self-raising flour and margarine. Then zest and juice of 1 lemon. Blitz it all together then pour into lined tins. Cook for 45 mins in oven at 180 c. Take out, let it cool. Then decorate to your hearts content!
The sugar cookie recipe I got from the internet, here's the link: 
Both were very yummy.
