Fairy Cakes and Coloured Sugar

When was the last time you had a fairy cake? They seem to be the product of school fetes and children’s cooking. Butterfly cakes… now I loved them! I do however remember liking the buttercream more than the cake, and making my own portion of buttercream to eat on it’s own. That makes me feel […]

In The Name of Science
