Ingredients
  Self-raising flour 135 Gram
  Caster sugar 120 Gram
  Soft margarine 120 Gram
  Eggs 2 Large
  Vanilla extract 6 Drop
  Water icing 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Optional)
  Cake decorations 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Optional)
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Line your bun tin with paper bun cases.
2. Make the water icing, cover with cling film and save till later.
3. Break the eggs into a clean jug and beat well.
4. Weigh and measure all ingredients.
5. Pre-heat the oven to 175°C (Gas Mark 3).

MAKING
6. Place the soft margarine and caster sugar into a large clean mixing bowl.
7. Using a hand-held electric whisk, whisk together until light and fluffy and is pale in color.
8. Scrape down the sides of the bowl from time to time.
9. Whisk at a high speed and gradually add the beaten eggs a little at a time.
10. When all the egg has been incorporated, add a few drops of vanilla extract for flavor.
11. Sieve the flour into the bowl and fold in using a large metal spoon or spatula.
12. Divide your mixture between the paper bun cases, filling them to about ¾ full.
13. Place in the centre of your pre-heated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes until the cakes are well risen, light golden brown and slightly firm to touch.
14. Remove the fairy cakes from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.

SERVING
15. When completely cold, spread a little water icing over the centre of each cake – you could use a spoon or small knife for this but you may find a small paper piping bag is more user-friendly. You can use different colors of icing.
