“The small, British version of the American cupcake. Usually covered in drizzly icing instead of frosting and covered with sprinkles, silver balls or sugar flowers they are perfect for afternoon tea, parties or to leave out for the fairies that give them their name ;)

They are the stuff of childhood memories: just one nibble can transport you back in time and even today, no self-respecting children’s birthday party would be without them.

My mother used to make beautifully decorated trays of fairy cakes for every event. I still remember her turning up at school on its centennial birthday with trays of iced fairy cakes, each sporting a hand-drawn icing school crest ;)
