  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the TupperChef™ Loaf Form on an oven tray and set aside.

  7. To make the icing, combine ingredients together in the Pink 1.5L Mixing Bowl.
  8. Spread over cooled cake and serve.


Tupper Tips:

  • For gluten-free Basic Cake Mix, simply substitute the self-raising flour with gluten free self-raising flour. This can be found in the health food aisle of your local supermarket.
  • If wanting to separate into individual cake servings place 4 cups per Modular Mates Oval #2.
  • Shake Modular Mate Cake Mix in sealed Modular before scooping out your required cake mix.
  • For an icing alternative for the Butter Cake, try gently spreading the top with raspberry jam and sprinkle with desiccated coconut.
  • For a runnier icing, try adding in 1-2tbs of milk.
