Mojitio Fairy Cakes



The Great British Bake off is back on the telly! I'll be doing a bake along with the show as I did last year and attempt to make something each week in the same category. I'll be posting photos of what I've made and the recipe too so you can try it at home too. This week the category was miniture cakes, so I've made mojitio fairy cakes inspired by my favourite cocktail.

You'll need...

Cupcake cases
100g Softened butter
100g caster sugar
100g self raising flour
2 large eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon baking powder

For the icing...

200g icing sugar
1 tablespoon white rum
Juice of 1 lime
Fresh Mint leaves

To make...

Pre-heat the oven to 180oC
Place twelve cupcake cases into a muffin tray
Put all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix until smooth
Spoon the mixture into the cases and fill 3/4 full
Bake for 15-20mins until they have risen and are golden brown (do not open the oven early as they will sink in the middle)
Leave to cool on a wire rack for 10 mins
Meanwhile make your icing, sift the icing sugar into a bowl and gradually add the rum and lime juice until you have a smooth, fairly stiff icing.
Spoon over the top of your cakes and decorate with mint leaves
