Method for Cake

Method for Frosting
1. In a medium-size bowl, beat the butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy, approx. 15 minutes.
2. Add the warm milk, peanut butter, and vanilla and continue to beat.

To Assemble
1. Trim your cake layer so they sit flat on top of one another.
2. Place your first layer on your serving plate and spread a good dollop Boysenberry Jelly over the cake.
3. Add another layer and repeat the process.
4. Add the last layer of the cake and smooth a thin layer of the frosting all over the cake. This is the crumb coat. Transfer the cake to the fridge to allow the frosting to harden.
5. To complete the icing of the cake, use the remaining frosting to cover the cake a second time. Taking care to create a smooth finish.
6. Using the Boysenberry Fruit Spread, drizzle down the side of the cake all the way around.
