Fairy Cakes

Today was baking day and in Scrumptious Corner  we decided on making Fairy Cakes or Angle Cakes or Cupcakes?  These delicious delights have so many names, I like the name Fairy Cakes best I think it describes them perfectly.

Cutting the butter 


Pouring into cases


Our Fairy Cakes
Perfect with

Mango delight
made by a Princess

The lovely little cake recipe
90g butter
1\2 teaspoon vanilla extract
110g (1\2 cup) caster sugar
2 eggs
150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
2 tablespoons milk

Pre-heat oven to 180oC 
Beat butter, extract, sugar, eggs, flour and milk until mixture has changed to a paler colour
Divide mixture into cases
Bake for 20 minutes
Cool on wire rack
Cut out a circle in the centre of the cake and cut this in half
Fill with whipped cream
Place the cut halves at angels on the cream
Sprinkle with icing sugar

A simple old favourite recipe but one to enjoy and cherish with loved ones!

They look delicious! And so does the mango drink... very refreshing. It is starting to get hot up here in NQ already, so my mouth watered when I saw the drink lol.

Good that your Princess is learning cooking early...
