I made these delectable fairy cakes for my Sunday school kids. Lynn and myself held a Palm Sunday picnic for the 6 girls under our care. Lynn and myself are the teachers for these Standard 3 gals. It was a off day for our sunday bible school, so Lynn decided to have a picnic for our girls at her house - to have a bonding time with them and to tell them more about what Palm Sunday is about. Lynn did a sketch to describe the Palm Sunday using real palm leaves for the sketch. Lynn is a passionate teacher . You can see she really loves the kids and I am learning a lot from her . Doing a job because you love it and doing it out of duty are two different things . I can see that she loves what she is doing. The girls truly enjoyed the games, the sketch prepared by Lynn and not to forget today highlight - the cakes prepared by yours truly :) These fairy cakes are perfect for children party. Simple to prepare and delicious. Lynn only love butter cake, but surprisingly she said these cakes are delicious and she ate a few :) I enjoy working together with Lynn . We both love the kids :) Read on for the recipe :)
these fairy cakes are easy to prepare and I used
my own homemade cranberry jam..you can use any
jam for the fillings :) I drop a dollop of jam onto
the cake batter to avoid the cake being too sweet
they rise up so nicely in the oven....and a tiny peek of jam can be seen
I am happy with my new oven...it bakes evenly
my faithful oven died on me a month ago
