Bake for Approx. 25-30 mins (or until you can insert a cake tester and it comes out clean)

Allow the cakes to cool completely before levelling them.

Mix 110g of margarine with 220g of icing sugar for your buttercream and add in pink colouring (add a little at a time until you achieve the colour you desire)

Pipe the pink buttercream into the centre of the cakes and sandwich together (Make sure the cake with two ridges is on top)
