2. Cream the butter and sugar for 2 minutes using an electric hand mixer.

3. Crack the eggs into a jug and lightly beat them, add the champagne to them.

4. Sift the flour and baking powder on top of the creamed butter and sugar mixture.

5. Add the egg and champagne to the bowl.

6. Mix them with an electric hand mixer at a medium speed for two minutes.

7. Divide the batter among liners.

Buttercream

2. Sift the icing sugar into the bowl and slowly blend with the hand mixer.

4. Add the champagne and mix everything together with the hand mixer for a further one minute at a slow speed.

Filling

Directions:

1. Mix the raspberry jam and champagne together in a bowl.

2. Using an apple corer, core out the centre of each cooled cake.

3. Using a teaspoon, fill the cored out cake with the champagne jam mixture and replace the cored out sponge back into the cake.

1. Frost each of the cakes with a palette knife or piping bag and nozzle.

2. Decorate with your favourite sprinkles, a cocktail firework or a fresh raspberry. Have fun!
