I made a Hummingbird cake from a recipe on here, I just served it with whipped cream on the side. It's a very moreish cake. Went down very well at work.

Depends if you want it as cake for morning tea or to fill the tins, or desert. Cream cheese or lemon icing and if desert cream or greek yoghurt...yum

use the feathers you saved from the hummingbirds you baked the cake with.

Oh and how do I make cream cheese icing please?

I just beat cream cheese, icing sugar and abit of vanilla essence till lovely and thick and smooth. Some add lemon juice rather than vanilla. I use a pot of the cream cheese and quite alot of icing sugar as I like it really thick and creamy.
