Method

 
Preheat the oven to 180 ºC (375 ºF). Grease a large oven pan with margarine and dust with flour. Cream margarine and castor sugar until light and creamy. Add vanilla essence. Sift cake flour, baking powder and salt together and add with the milk to the mixture. Mix thoroughly. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the mixture. Turn into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes or until a testing skewer comes out clean. Beat egg yolks until light and add castor sugar a spoonful at a time. Beat until sugar dissolves. Finally add cinnamon and beat thoroughly. Spread warm cake with mixture and allow to cool. ICING: Divide icing sugar into 3 portions. Mix one with water, one with brown and one with yellow colouring. This gives white, brown and yellow icing which should be quite thick. Ice alternate strips of colour across cake and using a knife, draw lines across cake in the opposite directions to the icing strips. Cut the cake into squares.
