Red nose day cakes

It has become something of a tradition for the boys to make cakes for Daddy to take to work to raise mummy for charity.

So last night we set to making some chocolate cakes for Comic Relief.

Basic Fairy Cake mixture (makes 18)

6 oz of butter or marg
6 oz caster sugar
5 oz of self raising flour
1 oz of coco powder
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 eggs
half teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 tablespoons of milk


Cream together the marg/butter and sugar.  Then add the rest of the ingredients in and mix well!

Put in the cake cases and an oven preheated to 180 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

Allow to cool.

Sorry, I don't have a recipe for icing, as I just bung the ingredients in together until they taste fine, but it was icing sugar, butter, milk  coco powder and vanilla extract.  The key is to give it a good mixing and then pop it in the fridge.  We also use a piping set from Lakeland and it is so easy to use that Maxi iced most of the cakes.

The noses are Renshaws pre-coloured icing, which Mini just rolled in to balls.  Oh and no cakes are complete without icing!
