Fairy cakes – Pretty triple layer party cakes

c2 c1 The dainty colour combination of this cake will make a delightful sight for  a little girl’s birthday party.  The  creamy butter icing between layers and on the top is heavenly with every mouthful.

You need the following items to make them: 

 Self Raising flour 300 g
Stork spread 300 g
Caster sugar 300 g
Eggs 5
Milk 1/4 cup
Lemon juice 2  tsp
Salt 2 pinches
Baking powder 1 tsp

Let’s Start: Set the oven to 180 Celsius . (Temperature conversion is given under Tips)

  •  Beat butter and sugar together until creamy,  using an electric hand mixer.
  • Add eggs, one at a time. Make sure you beat well after each addition.
  • Add vanilla essence,  lemon juice and salt and beat for two rounds.
  • Mix baking powder to flour and sieve onto the cake batter, holding well above it. Fold the flour gently with a wooden spoon until everything incorporates into a creamy batter.
  • Mix milk and fold.
  • Line up a baking tray with parchment paper and spoon the batter into the baking tray and flatten with a spatula.
  • Lift up the tray and drop it twice onto your kitchen top, allowing the batter to spread and settle evenly on the try.
  • Pop into the oven and bake for 15 – 20  mins.  Baking time could vary according to the settings of your oven.
  • Insert a skewer into the middle of the cake and if it comes clean,  your cake is ready.
  • Take it out from the oven and let it rest for 10 mins.
  • Slowly remove from the tray and place it on a cooling rack.
  • Let the cake cool completely before icing.  This will take an hour or two.

What you need for the icing:

  • Icing sugar-    300 g (Sieve twice to get the best smooth icing sugar)
  • Stork spread –   125 g
  • Lemon juice –   1 tsp
  • Milk –  1 tbsp
  • Vanilla essence – two drops
  • Liquid cake colours –  red and green  or any of your choice

Let’s make the icing:

  • Cream up all together using an electric hand mixer .
  • Divide the icing into two different bowls.
  • Drop two drops from red  into one bowl to make pink colour and two drops from green into another bowl and mix thoroughly.  Fill a separate bowl with plain icing cream.
  • I mix two drops from blue and yellow and make my own green, which is unique in colour.  Now, you have three different colours: plain , red and green.
  • Next, cut the sides and top layer off from the cake. Dip a long bread knife in hot water, wipe clean and slice the cake across from top and bottom so that you have three free layers.
  • Take a dollop from the plain icing cream and spread it across the lowest slice. Place the second layer on top and press it lightly. Now spread a layer of green icing cream on top. Place the top layer and press down lightly. Spread a layer of pink icing cream on the top.
  • Immediately after, sprinkle colourful sprinkles or desiccated coconut dipped in any colour.
  • Your pretty fairy cake is ready!!
