Fairy Cakes

A childhood party classic, everyone loves a tasty little fairy cake! An easy sponge recipe with a spoonful of a delicious vanilla glaze on top, you can decorate them however you please, so have fun decorating with sprinkles, sweets or mini marshmallows, maybe add a touch of colour to the icing.

Ingredients

  • For the sponge:
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the icing:
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 1 ½ tbsp milk
  • 2-3 drops vanilla extract
  • To decorate Sprinkles, sweets or mini marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C / 160°C fan assisted / gas 4 and line a muffin tin with 12 fairy cake liners.
  2. Place all sponge ingredients into a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, start mixing on low speed until mostly incorporated, then increase speed slightly and beat just until batter is smooth.
  3. Divide batter evenly between fairy cake lines then bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a fairy cake comes out clean, about 18-20 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and leave to cool in the muffin tin on a wire rack for about 10 minutes, then remove from tin and leave to cool completely on wire rack.
  5. Once cool, use a fork or small whisk to mix together icing ingredients until smooth. Drop teaspoons of icing on to each cupcake, then decorate while icing is still wet.
  6. Store in airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days.
