Fairy Cakes…

We were so busy this weekend attending parties and meeting friends, I decided on Sunday I couldn’t arrive empty handed so as well as my Banoffee Pie, Moo helped me make some fairy cakes for the children. So easy and quick to make, and now with all the delicious fancy decorations you can decorate them with such a fun activity for the children in the holidays too!

  • 125g Margarine
  • 125g Caster Sugar
  • 125g Self raising flour
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 Level teaspoon baking powder
  • Dr.Oetker easy swirl icing (I used pink and chocolate)
  • Cake sprinkles of your choice
  • Few drops of almond essence (personal choice)
  • 12 cup cake cases


  1. Preheat oven to 180°c
  2. Beat together the sugar and margarine till smooth, add the flour, baking powder and eggs and mix until a smooth batter. Lastly add the almond essence if you wish.
  3. Pour the mixture into the cases evenly and cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and spongy.
  4. Remove from the oven and let them cool.
  5. Once cooled, decorate with the swirl icing and sprinkles of your choice.
  6. EAT

Moo loved making these and loved eating them too! She even tried the cake mixture for the first time! – Yes mean mummy alert! I have been wary about letting her try it, what with raw egg and all, but I caught her red handed and she looked like she was enjoying it so much I couldn’t let her stop! she did declare after a while she was stuffed and I should remove it from her view to stop her eating it!

      Aww thank you. If I left moo to ice, it would of been rather messy! So I was on icing duties, and she was on sprinkle duties.. I love baking, and I think its rubbed of on Moo. When ever I am in the kitchen making things she is constantly in there with me helping.. She can make a cracking Yorkshire Pudding mixture! (with the help of me obviously!)

Banoffe Pie…

Banoffee Pie has to be my all time favourite, cream, bananas, toffee sauce and a biscuit base. Nothing is more...
