For the baking tin
Grease the baking tin and sprinkle in the sugar. Stir the butter/margarine and the sugar until light and airy. Add the eggs one at a time. Mix the flour, baking powder and vanilla extract and fold into the batter alternately with the milk/water. Pour the batter into the greased baking tin and bake the sponge cake at 175 °C for approx. 45 minutes. Turn it out and leave to cool.
Place a stencil on top of the cake and dust with icing sugar.
You can print the stencil below:
Pumpkin 1: Cut out the black details.
Pumpkin 2: Cut out the black details, as well as the entire pumpkin.
