May 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 195

So you're wondering how to make fairy cakes? Well you've come to the right place! These cakes are the perfect treat for parties, afternoon treats, or midnight snacks, and they are so easy to make! Fairy cakes, or cupcakes as they are also called, use the same ingredients a regular sized cake, but they are smaller and easier to eat for children, at parties, or on the run.

You can use your favorite cake recipe and turn it into your fairy cakes recipe, but here is my favorite recipe. If you want to use your own recipe then feel free, but you can use these instructions as a guideline to make your cakes come out tasty and really good looking!

The ingredients that you'll need are the following:

four and a half ounces (125 grams) softened butter,four and a half ounces (125 grams) sugar, two eggs beaten slightly, one teaspoon of vanilla extract, four and a half ounces (125 grams) flour,two tablespoons of milk.

After gathering the ingredients and preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius) then place paper cases into the holes of your fairy cake pan (cupcake pan). Then in a large mixing bowl beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy using a large wooden spoon (or an electric whisk if that's your preferred weapon of choice). Slowly add the egg to the mixture then the vanilla, continually stirring as you add them. Sift half of your flour and fold it into the mixture. Add the milk and the rest of the flour until it is a smooth, well mixed batter. Next, spoon the mixture into the pan and bake for ten to twelve minutes, or until golden.

Next comes the fun part: decorating your fairy cakes! After allowing the cupcakes to cool for about ten minutes, remove the paper cups from the pan and place them onto a cooling rack to let them stand for about half an hour or until they are completely cooled. While you're waiting you can make your favorite frosting mixture, or you can just use the pre-made frosting from a container that you purchased at a store. Leaving the fairy cakes in the paper cups, decorate them with the frosting. After putting a thin layer of icing over the entire top before, add the fun decorations. You can spell words writing one letter on each cake, make smiley faces, draw trees or plants with the icing, or just about anything else that you can imagine! Just remember to be creative and have fun!

Fairy cakes are so fun and easy to make. They are the perfect dessert for a party where you want to become creative and have fun. They are easy to make into themed treats to spice up your party. So now that you know how to make fairy cakes what are you waiting for? Go get creative!
