2.    For the sponge, cream the butter and castor sugar together until pale and fluffy.

3.    Add the vanilla and then the eggs, one at a time, beating continuously.

4.    Fold in the sifted dry ingredients and the milk. Pour into the prepared tins and bake in the preheated oven, 45minutes. The cakes should be lightly golden and cooked through when tested with a skewer. Remove the cakes from the oven and set aside to cool.

5.    For the icing, cream the butter and add the icing sugar, gradually, while beating. Fold in the rose essence and colouring.

6.    To assemble, use a 6cm round cutter to cut out mini cakes from the sponge. Sandwich them together with icing and ice the tops. Garnish with the fresh, spray-painted flowers or berries.
