Fairy Cakes

Today I did a surprise baby shower for my super friend Hayley, she was very surprised and happy! She has three weeks to go…….!

So I spent yesterday baking fairy cakes. I’d forgotten what easy fun they are and so pretty when stacked on a cake stand. Buy cake glitter from Hobby Craft or similar craft places to make iced fairy cakes look even more pretty for birthdays or expectant mummy’s!


  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • 4 oz butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 oz self raising flour


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 c.
  2. Cream the fat and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  3. Whisk in the eggs slowly until completely combined.
  4. Fold in the flour until you have a soft smooth mixture.
  5. Spoon into cup cases, prettier the better! Only 2/3 fill so when cooked they don’t over flow.
  6. Cook for 10/15 minutes until golden and risen.
  7. Decorate with coloured icing and edible glitter. Perfect!
