7.    Sift the plain flour and baking powder together and fold into the egg mixture.
8.    Add in enough milk to form a soft cake batter.
9.    Pour into the prepared cake tin and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until a skewer is inserted and it comes out clean.
10.    To prepare the icing, whisk all the ingredients together until light and fluffy.
11.    When the cake is bake and is still hot, make some holes in the top with a skewer and pour the prosecco syrup over, spreading as you go. Leave to soak in.
12.    To decorate, place the cake on a cake stand. Using a palette knife, spread the icing over the top, sides and inside of the cake.
13.    Colour some Siúcra Roll Out Icing Sugar with red colour paste and make a bow.
14.    Arrange the frosted cranberries, rosemary sprigs dusted in sugar and the pretty bow on top.
