I trawled through my cookbooks and decided I try my hand at millionnaires shortbread. I bought all the ingredients and spent hours lovingly making said fayre. I happily handed over the cakes next morning.
After school however I watched in horror as the cakes were sold for around 20p each, and all the kids were fighting over fairy cakes and gingerbread shapes. I slunk away as mine were still milling around at the end. Big hmmmmf!
No longer the rooky, with Jasper in Year 2, we have another Cake Sale today, so last night we knocked up some wicked fairy cakes :)
Ingredients: Icing (optional)
100g (4oz) softened margarine 175g (6oz) icing sugar

2 eggs sweets to decorate?

Place 18 paper cases in a bun tins or on a baking tray.
Put all ingredients in a bowl and beat well until thoroughly blended and smooth.
Half fill each paper case with the mixture.
Bake them in the pre-heated oven for about 18 minutes, until well risen and firm to the touch.

We iced ours and topped them with sprinkles, I have a happy Jasper this morning, who of course had to try one after breakfast, just to be sure ;)
