Sweetie traybake

It's my son's school BBQ tomorrow and they need cake! I've seen a few of these around and have loads of spare sweets (yeah I know!) so decided to kill two birds with one stone.

This is an orange coloured and flavoured sponge slathered in white chocolate and topped with sweets. You can use any sweets you like of course. Super simple, super quick and what child is going to say no to a slice?!

8oz caster sugar 
8oz butter/margarine 
8oz self raising flour
4 eggs
Orange food colouring
Orange flavouring
200g white chocolate 
Lots of sweets

Preheat the oven to 190/170 fan and line a 9x9 baking tin with grease proof paper.

Beat together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy then add half the flour and two eggs. Beat in then add the rest of the flour and the remaining two eggs along with the food colouring and flavouring (I added 1tbsp as mine is quite weak).

Pour into the tin and bake for 25 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. 

Leave to cool then melt the chocolate. I melt mine in the microwave on half power and check every 30 seconds (this only took 60 to melt as it's very hot today). Pour over the cooled cake, leave a couple of minutes then adorn with the sweetie selection of your choice.

This cake has to put a smile on your face!
