Cake :

225g  (8oz) Land O Lakes Butter
225g  (8oz) Domino’s Soft brown sugar
4 Large eggs
275g  (10oz) Gold Medal Self raising flour
2 tbsp Hershey’s Caramel Syrup
2 tsp Hershey’s Butterscotch flavouring

¾ cup American Cream Soda

Optional – You can add 110 g (4 oz) butterscotch chips at this point

Butterscotch Centre:
110g  (4oz) Icing sugar
2 oz (60g)Land O Lakes Butter
110g  (4oz) Nestle White chocolate with butterscotch flavouring or butterscotch chips

Cream Frosting Topping:

1 Sachet Birds Dream Topping

Tu Moo Milk to mix

Vanilla Butternut to taste

4oz (110g) Icing sugar
1 oz (30g) Butter


Preheat oven 275F

Cream the sugar and butter together. Whisk in the caramel syrup and butterscotch essence then the eggs, one at a time. Fold in half the flour. Stir in the cream soda. Add the rest of the flour ( and the butterscotch chips if desired). Divide into two sandwich tins.

Place in the centre of the oven. Check after 20 minutes. Cook until risen and a skewer comes cleanly out. Allow to cool and make icings.

For the butterscotch centre and the cream frosting topping make up the sachet of Dream Topping but put in slightly less milk for a slightly stiffer consistency. Put to one side.

Gently whisk butter, and icing sugar together. Add and stir in two spoonfuls of the Dream Topping. Melt the butterscotch chips and combine with the icing. Spread on one cake half and place other cake half on top.

For the topping mix the butter, icing sugar and butternut essence until a stiff paste is produced. Gradually stir in the rest of the Dream Topping and spread over the top of the cake. It is possible to cover the sides as well but this a quite a wet topping to mimic the frothy beer topping and does make it tricky, if rather fun, to pick up. Finally, sprinkle with edible gold dust.
