Mini Matcha-tastic Naked Cake!

We are just too in love with one of this year's cake trends - The Naked Cake! The idea behind this style is to strip back the frostings and fondants and pay tribute to the simple appearance and flavour of a cake. Naked Cakes are a popular choice for weddings, however we've been dreaming of a Naked Cake that we could make at home and enjoy with a few loved ones.

So we came up with our own Mini Matcha-tastic Naked Cake, a three layered Matcha cake with butter frosting and topped with garden flowers! The kids (and grown-ups) with go crazy over this one! 

Cake

1 cup caster sugar
150gms butter, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
½ cup milk
2 tablespoons Matcha Maiden MIX N MATCHA
1 cup self raising flour

OR

1 cup natvia
150gms coconut oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
½ cup almond milk
2 tablespoons Matcha Maiden MIX N MATCHA
1 cup gluten free self raising flour

Icing
1 cup butter
2 cups icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
1 tablespoon milk

OR

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup dairy-free butter substitute (either Nuttelex or Sunburst will do) 
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
2 cups icing sugar 
1 tablespoon water 

Method

1// Preheat oven to 180 and grease mini cake tins.
2// Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Combined eggs, vanilla paste, and milk together. Sift in Matcha and baking powder and combined with flour.
3// Pour even amounts of batter half full in 3 mini cake tins and bake for 25-30 mins or until cake top springs back. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
4// For icing, incorporate all ingredients into a bowl and mix together until thick and glossy. Spread icing onto top of each cake and layer one on top of the other. Starting from the top, with a palette knife, thinly spread icing around the layered cake.
5// Allow to set and decorate with garden flowers to finish!
