Step 4: Bake in a moderate oven for 10 minutes, or until cooked. When cold join two together with vanilla filling.

Step 5: For filling, cream 1/2 a cup of butter with 2 tablespoons of boiling water, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 4 level tablespoons of cornflour and enough icing sugar to make it the right consistency for spreading.
