We decided to experiment with colour and flavour to the basic fairy cake recipe by mixing in the Christmas colour red, and then decorating with Christmas stars 🙂
5 medium eggs
6 oz butter
6 oz self raising flour
3 oz castor sugar
A splash of strawberry flavouring
A dash of red food colouring
Spoon into cake cases bake at 180 degrees (fan oven – please adjust your times accordingly) for 15-20 minutes (when the cakes have risen and smell “cooked”)
Leave to cool
Mix up some icing sugar and add a dash of colour.
Spoon the mixture onto the cakes & add stars.
Allow to set.
