Baking With Children : Fairy Cakes…

Me and my children love to bake. 

Especially yummy cakes!!

My daughter loves to make fairy cakes, something special about fairy cakes!!

Serves: 10

Set up: 15 minutes
Cooking time:12 minutes


  • 150g (5.3 oz) Flora Buttery 
  • 150g (5.3 oz) caster sugar 
  • 3 medium eggs 
  • 150g (5.3 oz) self raising flour
  • 115g (4 oz) icing sugar
  • Sprinkles

How to make:

  1. Put everything except the icing sugar into a big bowl and mix well. 
  2. Pop into paper cake cases and bake at 175°C/155°C fan/gas mark 4 for 10-12 minutes. 
  3. Leave to cool. 
  4. Remember making cupcakes is all about having fun, not about making the most perfect creations. So make your decorations as simple or as difficult as you want.
  5. For simple quick icing, mix two tablespoons of water with the icing sugar a little at a time until its smooth. 
  6. Top the cakes with a teaspoon of icing each and add whatever else takes your fancy.
