Easy cupcakes - using a victoria sponge cake mixture in muffin cases. Buttercream icing and a few sprinkles - look far more flashy than most fairy cakes and you can charge much more for them. For the same amount of mix as you would use for a smallish sponge cake which would be sliced up you can get one dozen cup cakes which will make twice as much cash.
I did think flapjacks but mine never look saleable.
Shortbread I'm rubbish.
Lemon drizzle - can I make mini ones? I'm running a flipping 'afternoon tea/plant sale' thing on saturday. (which I now sinkingly remember needs cakes for) i suppose I could do slices. Oh blimey I should be concentrating on that rather than school fair. I'm losing my grip, I really am!
Muffins I like but they'd have to be big fluffy ones.....
Arrrgh, I don't know why I care cos I actually do have saturdays thingy. I'm clearly starting to do displacement activities.
Ingredients 100 g unsalted butter 200 g milk chocolate 3 tablespoons golden syrup 225 g digestive biscuits, finely crushed 225 g Maltesers
1line a 8x8 square tin, or smaller, (your cake will be thicker thats all.)with cling, foil or baking parchment.
2Finely crush the biscuits.
3Place butter,syrup and chocolate in a pan and melt over a low heat, you may want to take it off the heat before the chocolate completely melts so the mixture doesn't get too hot for the maltesers later.
4Add the crushed biscuits and mix together well.
5Work quickly now and pour the mixture into the tin, smoothing out to make it an even thickness.
6Place the maltesers all over the top and press into the mix.
7Leave to cool before chilling and slicing.
8It also looks lovely if you drizzle melted white chocolate over the top.
http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/3431/chocolate-brownie-cake this says it takes longer than it takes me as I put them in a flat dish and make square ones instead of one cake.
Can't find the refridgerator cake one-it's Annabelle Karmel and is basically melted chocolate (I mix dark and milk), with a bit of butter and golden syrup added, all melted together then mixed with broken digestives, raisins and cherries, put in a 'swiss roll tin' then left in the fridge. Do line the tin with cling film though or it's difficult/impossible to get out!
But I really would advise doing something and then it becoming your "thing", and then you don't even have to think about it ! I always do shortbread hearts, so I don't have to think, and everyone else knows that's what I do so the PTA are expecting them.
