Fairy cakes may not be as big, bold and outlandish as their American cousin the cupcake, but they are simple, dainty and a great first baking recipe for kids. They don't take long to bake so there's you don't need to hang around before the fun decoration stage.
: 20 minutes preparation, 20 minutes for baking and cooling, 15 minutes decorating
: Any Age
Folding in the flour for the fairy cakes
Fairy cakes fresh from the oven and cooling on a wire wrack
Fairy cakes are fun to decorate and putting on the icing sugar requires intense concentration from a toddler
Decorate your fairy cakes with anything from sprinkles to mini marshmallows
If you're doing this with younger kids then just relax and let them splat away with the icing sugar. It's impossible to make really neat ones and keep them happy. After all, it's about the kids, isn't it?
Delicious fairy cakes
