Mothers Day Suprise

Mothers day is creeping up on us as we speak and we all want our mothers to have a nice day. I've already bought a gift which I think she'll love...BUT..

...There is nothing like a homemade gift!!

So here is a gift idea or a little something extra you can all whip together quite easily which will definately make your mum smile :)

You will need:

For the cakes...
  • 6 oz of self-raising flour
  • 4 oz of soft margarine
  • 4 oz of caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence
  • Cup Cake Cases

For the decoration...
  • 5 oz of softened butter
  • 10 oz of icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla essence
  • Food colouring (Optional)
  • Hunders and Thousands (Optional)
  • Edible Silver Balls (Optional)

This is a very easy recipe!!...Pre- heat your oven to 190 c, Gas mark 4 or 375 f. Mix ALL the cake ingredients together and spoon equal amounts into your cup cake cases. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when skewered. Leave them to cool to room temperature whilst you make your icing.

Again..the icing is basic to make. Mix together the butter, icing sugar and vanilla until it is a thick but smooth consistency and tastes yummy! If you do use food colouring, add it in tiny amounts until it becomes the colour you desire. Smooth the icing onto the cakes and sprinkle your choice of decoration on top!!

I hope you all have a lovely day!! :)
