- 125g butter (very soft)
- 125g self raising flour
- 125g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Preheat oven 190c. Line muffin tins with cupcake papers.
- Put all the ingredients except for the milk into a food processor and blend until smooth. Add a couple of tablespoons of milk so that the mixture is of a dropping consistency
- Spoon into your prepared paper cases & bake for about 12-15mins, depending on your sizes.
I usually use “buttercream” style icing, which you can get from most supermarkets, and ice the cakes using an icing bag and wide nozzle. Glitter icing looks very effective, as do daisies made of edible paper (again available in the shops)!
