Boxie The Baker: Fairy Cakes

What You'll Need

  • Preheat the oven: Gas Mark 4/180C/170C
  • A Muffin Tray
  • 100g butter, softened
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 60 mins
  • Ages 5 - 8

Who doesn’t like a fairy cake
With icing on the top!
And I bet I’ll like the ones you make
More than ones bought in a shop!

Getting Started:

  • Put all of the ingredients into a big bowl then mix them and whisk them until you have a smooth, creamy liquid.
  • Scoop a spoonful into each bun case, or into the dips in a bun tin (this recipe should be enough for 12 Fairy Cakes)
  • Put them in the oven and cook for about 10-15 minutes. You’ll know they’re ready when you press on them gently and they spring back into shape.
  • Once they have cooled you can decorate them anyway you want!

Some Suggestions:

This would make a great gift idea for someone.  Pop the cakes into a nice box or tin and give them to someone who has made you happy this week.


You’re not just making food, you are teaching science in action; helping to lay down basic math, reading and time-telling skills; encouraging healthy food choices; building confidence and creativity; enhancing communication and deepening connections with your child. Indeed, cooking with little ones is nothing short of awesome.
