I made these last year and they were awful (they were in last year's summertime leaflet). Baking isnt my strong point - but i really dont believe you can make a decent tasting cake with low fat spread and sweetener.

And I just cannot get the right consistency with icing - it always ends up far too runny and just runs over the edges of the cakes


all for my little man x
Just made these, they were meant to be for a taster session tomorrow and they have come out awful!!! Gutted as the picture looked so nice on slimming world online - I will never understand how I can follow a cake recipe to the tee and still fail miserabley!!! x


Really likes to cook
I made these yesterday!..........one lot is strawberry the other grapes.
