Fairy cakes to celebrate a visit from the Fairy Hobmother.
The Fairy Hobmother is actually a chap called David from Appliances Online who visits blogs and grants kitchen appliance wishes.
I wished for a new stick blender over on Ali's blog because Katie and Tom have worn out my old one making banana milkshakes and I rely on it for making pancake batter and soups nearly every week.
My wish has been granted!
Why not try wishing for a new small kitchen appliance yourself?
It's easy - wait for a shooting star and close your eyes and wish.... or you could just write your wish in a comment on this post because the Fairy Hobmother will be flying by very soon.
4 oz of soft butter
4 oz caster sugar
4 oz self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
Beat everything together really well.
Place 18 paper cake cases in bun tins and half fill each one with the batter.
Bake at 200°c (180°c fan oven) for 15 -20 mins until golden-brown and well-risen.
Lemon glacé icing
8 oz icing sugar
juice of one lemon
Add the lemon juice gradually to the sugar to make a fairly stiff icing. You may not need all the juice.
Add colouring if you like.
Spread on the cakes when they are completely cool.
