Sophia Makes Cakes

I LOVE pink Icing

I LOVE 100's and 1000's

Today Sophia joined Grandma and Elisabeth for the morning.  After a busy morning at the market, where we observed the Remembrance Ceremony, we trundled home to bake cakes.  Sophia loves baking!  Today her and Aunty Bubith (Elisabeth) made iced fairy cakes.  Much faster to bake and ice than driving into town to buy them and MUCH more fun, as you can see. I know I should measure in grammes but old habits die hard and I apologise for measurements in ounces.  I will get Bub to convert them to grammes at some point!

Easy Fairy Cakes
4oz Butter
4oz Sugar
4oz S R Flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of Baking Powder
Splish of milk 

For the Topping
3oz of Icing Sugar
A few drops of warm water 
Food colouring of your choice (pink usually in this house)

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and use one small child to mix the ingredients, when their arm becomes tired (or they get bored), whoosh the mixture with a hand mixer until light and fluffy.  Divide the mixture between approximately 12 paper cases and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes until risen and golden.  Allow to cool whilst you prepare the icing.  Using one small child armed with a metal spoon dollop the icing onto the top of the fairy cakes and sprinkle liberally with 100's and 1000's (the cakes not the child)
