250g stork to bake (room temp.)
3 cups icing sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla essence

2. In a coffee grinder, grind the mixture, little at a time, until fine like powder.
3. In a deep saucepan make syrup, stirring the entire time. The syrup will be done when you are able to make a ‘web’ between your forefinger and thumb.
4. Add into syrup 2 tablespoon butter, rose essence to taste & a pinch of Elachi (cardomom) powder.
5. Pour a little at a time syrup into dry mixture and mix, until binded. Do not pour all of syrup in, it may not be needed and will make burfee too wet.
6. Pour into a greased pyrex dish (that has a lid that seals) and cool.
7. When cooled, cover with lid. Leave in fridge overnight to set.
1. Preheat oven to 180degC.
2. Grease mini loaf pans.
3. Mix all ingredients for batter.
4. Spoon into holes till ¾ full.
5. Bake for 15min till golden and when skewered, skewer comes out clean.
6. Leave cakes aside to cool.
1. Beat stork to bake, sugar, milk and essence till light and fluffy.
2. Add burfee to frosting and beat in.
3. May add green colouring and pistachio essence if you'd like.
4. Spoon into piping bag and place in fridge to firm up a little.

6. If it is hot, store cakes in airtight container in fridge.
7. Store remainder frosting in airtight container in freezer.
8. Decorate with edible glitter, pistachios or badaam.
