I made a batch of Fairy Cakes, but chose to bake them directly in the tin,well greased of course. This was not a plain cake or bun tray as you can see from the photographs it had ridges.

Fairy Cake Recipe (makes 24-36 depending on cake case size)

HEAT THE OVEN TO 180 DEGREES C / GAS 4

    Ingredients

    3 eggs (beaten)

    170g / 6oz golden caster sugar
    170g / 6oz butter or baking margarine (softened)
    170g / 6oz self raising flour (sifted)
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    • PLACE THE BUTTER AND SUGAR INTO A BOWL, AND CREAM TOGETHER WITH A HAND WHISK UNTIL PALE AND FLUFFY.
    • ADD A THIRD OF THE BEATEN EGG AND WHISK ON HIGH UNTIL COMBINED
    • ADD A SPOONFUL OF FLOUR (THIS WILL HELP PREVENT THE MIXTURE FROM CURDLING) AND MIX.
    • ADD SOME MORE OF THE EGG AND BEAT TOGETHER, ADD A SPOONFUL OF FLOUR AND MIX.
    • ADD THE REMAINING EGG AND MIX, THEN ADD THE REMAINING FLOUR AND GENTLY FOLD IN USING A SPATULA OR WOODEN SPOON UNTIL COMBINE TOGETHER.
    • SPOON THE MIXTURE INTO YOUR CAKE CASES, FILLING TO HALF WAY IF YOU WANT A LEVEL CAKE OR TO THREE QUARTERS FULL FOR A LARGER CAKE
    • BAKE IN THE OVEN FOR 10-12 MINUTES APPROX, TEST WITH A SKEWER WHICH SHOULD COME OUT CLEAN

    Once cooled I spoon on the Rose Water Glaze and before it dries decorate with sprinkles. I used some dried rose petal sprinkles I had in the cupboard.

    Rose Water Glaze Recipe

    Sifted icing sugar
    Rose water
    Dried roses cake sprinkles

    There are no measurements, you add as much of the rose water to the icing sugar to obtain the consistency you want. The bottle of Rosewater I have does not seem to be so potent, so I only used Rosewater. But if your Rosewater is strong you may want to use water and add drops of Rosewater instead.
