Fairy Cakes

Once you’ve made your buns you can have fun icing and decorating, and putting twiddles and bows and whatever else on top! People used to make these laboriously using the creaming method, but I now shoot the whole lot into a food-processor, whizz it up for 4–5 seconds and bake in the usual way. It may not be a forgotten skill, but I don’t see any virtue in getting blisters on your hands from creaming when this gives a very good result.
