Fairy Cakes

by Stephanie

A really easy recipe that has become a family favorite.

4oz (115g) butter, softened
4oz (115g) superine (castor) sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
4oz (115g) self-raising flour

Preheat oven to 375F (190C).

Line cupcake trays with cupcake papers.

Put the butter and sugar in a large bowl of an electric mixer and beat until pale and fluffy (approx 5 minutes).

Gradually add the beaten eggs. Fold in the sifted flour and stir until well combined.

Spoon mixture into cupcake trays.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of a cupcake comes out clean.

Cool in trays for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Frost with icing and decorate with sprinkles, cherries, chocolates or as desired.


7oz (200g) confectioners (icing) sugar
2 tablespoons milk
food coloring

Sift the sugar into a bowl and gradually add milk until the mixture is of a spreadable consistency.

Add food coloring, if using, and stir until it is evenly blended.
