Fairy cupcakes

What fairy cakes are everybody knows. Please have a look on those I baked. The recipe comes from this website.

Ingredients for 18-24 cupcakes:
  • 140g soft butter
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 100g self-rising flour
  • 25g cornflour
Preheat the oven to 190C. Line cupcake tin with paper cases.

Put all ingredients into electric mixer bowl and beat about 2 minutes until smooth. Divide the batter between paper cases no more than 1/2 full. Bake them for 12-15 minutes until risen. Insert the toothpick in the middle of cake to check if it comes out clean. When baked transfer to the wire rack to cool down.

Ingredients for icing:
  • 400g icing sugar
  • 4-7 tbsp water (or half water half lemon juice)
  • food colourings
  • sugar sprinkles
Sift the icing sugar to the bowl and add 4 tbsp water. With a spoon mix them together. If the mixture is too thick add more water but be careful as the mixture may became to runny. If you want to achieve different colour than white add small amount of chosen food colouring. Decorate the cupcakes with the icing and sprinkle with sugar sprinkles.
