    2-3 drop vanilla essence
    ½tsp strawberry flavouring

    To decorate:

    A couple of drop of red food colouring
    8 level tsp icing sugar plus extra for dusting

    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
