The kids were keen to help.
The first batch both overcooked and collapsed. I racked my brains and realised I put the wrong quantity if butter.
I added more butter and tried again. The second time around the cakes collapsed again. I haven't made fairy cakes in a long time so I wonder if the ingredients were a little too old.
Kooks had to come to the rescue and bring us some plain fairy cakes on the way home which we decorated with glacé cherries and cake decorating gel.
I filled a tray each and they went down a treat at school.
