The batter will not be very thick, but it will rise so keep that in mind when you are pouring it into the tin. Leave room for the cake to rise and not overflow.

This is how to make the frosting. I usually will make it in a paper bowl and then put in the fridge until the cake is finished and has cooled before I apply it.

Now get ready to apply your frosting. Make sure the cake is still slightly warm so that it melts on nice and smooth.
