Party Cakes…

Me and my daughter made these fun and easy to make fairy cakes for her class at school last Friday to celebrate end of SAT’s!!

We made up 3 batches as there is around 24 in her class and we wanted some for the weekend too. We also made a few in the cupcake machine as we were running out of time.

  • 150g Caster sugar

  • 150g Self raising flour
  • Few drops of vanilla essence 

For the icing:

  • 125g icing sugar
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of water

  1. With an electric whisk, mix the margarine to make it nice and smooth.
