My Mum went out last night and left me to make some Fairy Cakes! I've never been left in charge of making anything before - my Mum has always been there to check as I go along and to ask when I get stuck!
Here is how I made them:
These were great fun to make on my own!
To make 12
100g Self Raising Flour
100g Caster Sugar
100g Soft Butter
2 Medium Organic Eggs
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
175g Icing Sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons Warm Water
Coloured Food Dye - Optional
Any decorations that you want
I put the sugar into a bowl, cut up the butter and put it in with the sugar - then I mixed and mixed and mixed them together. Then I put the eggs into a jug and whisked them together and started to add the eggs to the butter and sugar mixture, when that was all mixed together I added the sifted flour, then the vanilla extract.
The oven had already been set at 190C and I had already put some paper cases in a bun tray.
I put the mixture as evenly as I could into the paper cases and cooked them for 15 minutes.
When they came out of the oven I left them to cool down and went to have a shower! Once I was ready for bed I came back downstairs and made the icing - it really was a bit too runny but I was tired and running out of time, so I used what I had made and then decorated the cakes.
They tasted yummy.
