fairy cakes - yum!

This is the fairy cake recipe Mum taught me when I was little, they're still delicious now!

Fairy cakes with lemon icing (makes 12)

for the cakes:
110g butter
110g sugar
110g self-raising flour
2 large eggs

for the icing:
juice of 1 lemon
300-400g icing sugar
food colouring

Preheat oven to 180C/Gas 4. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and mix together. Sift in flour and combine well. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden, and cool on wire rack. Put lemon juice in bowl and gradually add icing sugar until you have a smooth spreadable icing. Add a couple of drops of food colouring to colour the icing. Spread onto top of cooled cakes with the back of a spoon. Eat!
