ingredients: For the cakes
2 Egg(s) (free range)
1 tsp Vanilla extract
100g White caster sugar
100g Self-raising white flour
For the icing
150g Icing sugar
Preheat the oven to 170°C (fan 150°C, gas mark 3). Line a muffin tray with 10-12 paper cases.
Beat together the butter and sugar, then add in the eggs one at a time mixing between each addition. Add the vanilla extract.
Carefully fold in the flour until just incorporated.
Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden on top. Insert the tip of a knife into the cases to check that they are baked throughout. If they are ready the knife should be clean when removed from the sponge.
Allow to cool on a rack.
To make the icing, add a few drops of water to the icing sugar until the consistency becomes smooth and glossy. Add more water if needed, or if the icing becomes too runny add a touch more icing sugar to thicken.
Spoon the icing on to each cake and decorate with a handful of coloured sprinkles.
