Mary Berry's iced fairy cakes

Love fairy cakes? So do we! That's why we've got plenty of simple fairy cake recipes to choose from. Whether you're in the mood for baking up a storm in the kitchen or you're trying to find a way to entertain the kids - fairy cakes are perfect. Try our easy vanilla or gooey chocolate fairy cakes and of course our 10 easy fairy cakes to make with your kids for more ideas.

Fairy cakes are much smaller than cupcakes which means they cook quicker and can be decorated in any way that you'd like. Keep it simple like Mary Berry's fairy cakes, or push your skills with Rachel Allen's butterfly fairy cakes.

These sweet treats can become a family favourite in your household in no time. Perfect for kids parties, pracitising your cupcake decorating skills or afternoon tea with your friends, fairy cakes have never been easier - enjoy!
