  • Ingredients
  • 200g soft butter
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milk


  • Icing:
  • 175 g very soft butter
  • 350g icing sugar
  • Food coloring
  • Cake decorations


  1. Preheat oven to gas 4/ 180c
  2. Put the muffin cases into a muffin tin
  3. Blend the butter and sugar until it turns pale and fluffy
  4. Add the eggs one at a time beating it all in before you add the next one
  5. Next, sift in the flour, beat together, then add the vanilla and milk and beat until mixture becomes soft and fluffy
  6. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases, until they are about half full
  7. Pop in the oven and leave to cook for 15 to 18 minutes.
  8. To check if they are cooked you can poke a skewer in and if it comes out clean with no mixture sticking to it then they are done
  9. Or if you touch the top of the cake it should spring back to shape
  10. Take out and leave to cool
  11. When the cakes are cool you can put the icing on top
  12. To make the icing, simply beat the icing sugar and soft butter together until it becomes fluffy and soft
  13. If it feels too hard you can add a tablespoon of hot water or milk and that will make it softer and easier to apply to cake.
  14. You can either use an icing tube to ice the cakes or use a teaspoon to spread the mixture on
  15. Sprinkle your decorations on before the icing sets to help them stick better
