Baking with Heathers World- Butterfly Fairy Cakes





Hey everyone,

First off I just want to apologise that this didn't go up on time. For this episode of this series I decided to make Butterfly fairy cakes. This is something I made a lot when I was younger and as we didn't have a lot of time to bake so we decided to make these.

The recipe we used was http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/32867/butterfly-fairy-cakes.aspx

The ingredients you will need for the cakes are:

  • 110g Butter
  • 110g Self Raising Flour
  • 110g Caster Sugar. 
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon of Milk 
For the Buttercream you will need are:
  • 150g Butter
  • 250 Icing sugar 
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract 

The first thing we did was to preheat the oven on gas mark 4 and lined our baking tray with cake cases. To start of we measured out all the ingredients we would need for the cakes. We then added the butter and sugar together and mixed until light and fluffy. 

Once the mixture was light and fluffy we added the eggs gradually one at a time and mixed until it was all together. If your mixture splits and curdles like ours did then just keep gradually adding some extra flour until it has formed a mixture. 

The next step is to Sift in the flour gradually and fold the flour into the mixture until it is well combined. Once this is all done add the Vanilla extract and milk and mix them until you get a thicker mixture. 

Then devide the mixture as evenly as possible between the cake cases and put in the oven for 15-20 or until a knife or skewer comes out clean. When they are done leave them to cool and move on to making the buttercream.






To make the buttercream we weighed everything out then mixed the butter and sugar together. once this was completely mixed together then add the Vanilla extract. Now we put this in the fridge as our takeaway had came but you can go straight to icing once they are cool.

To make the butterfly cut a round hole in the top of the cake, fill with icing and then cut the hole in half and stick on top to look like butterfly wings.

And there you have it Butterfly fairy cakes. These take around a hour and a half total to make and I loved baking these as it brought back memories from my childhood. I am thinking of making homemade tomato soup for next weeks post as I want to start doing a few more healthier posts.

Until next time,
