  • 150g self-raising flour

  • 200g icing sugar

  • 150g caster sugar

  • 150g sunflower margarine

  • 3 eggs

  • 40g Smarties

  • 1.5 tsp baking powder

  • 75g strawberry laces

  • 30g writing icing


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Place the margarine, caster sugar, flour, baking powder and eggs in a large bowl.
  3. Beat with an electric whisk until light and creamy.
  4. Spoon the mixture into paper cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden. Cool on a wire rack.
  5. Put the icing sugar in a bowl, and add about 30ml (2 tbsp) water and mix to a smooth paste. When the cakes have cooled off, you can ice them.
  6. Decorate with sweets or icing, be as creative as you want. Piping spiderwebs out of chocolate to top the cakes is a great, and easy, way to finish.

Handy Hint

Un-iced cakes can be frozen for up to 3 months, which can then be decorated when defrosted.
The cakes can be decorated when defrosted.
