Living a Fairytale




I grew up my early days living a fairytale called London ! little did I know I will truly live this fairytale. Yesterday my friend Janet called up to plan for a day visit to London, in view of the beautiful weather.  Could I have refused my chance to live this fairytale all over again!  
London is indeed a dream come true,  the home of the British royal family, with no words to define the magnificence of the Buckingham Palace, the cosmopolitan always busy and bustling with people and the hackney carriages.  What augments to the exquisiteness of the city is so many folks from out of the country just in one time, not to mention to the beautiful sights, smells and sounds.
Not expedition to London would be complete without the shopping  spree starting from the trendy shops in Oxford street right through to the very elite stores in Savile Row and Bond street. And there couldn’t be a better way to end the day without a cruise on the River Thames through the heart of London, giving a spectacular views across the city, whereas the Tower of London gives a view of what life in London was like in days gone by.

The recipe for these fairy cakes, are a dedication to my fairytale, the London city, city of dreams!!





 115 g unsalted butter, at room temperature,
115 g caster sugar,
2 eggs beaten,
115 g self-raising flour,
Icing and decoration
200 g icing sugar,
About 2 tbsp warm water,
A few drops of edible food colouring,
Hundreds and thousands, and chocolate strands to decorate

Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5. Place 16 paper bun cases into a shallow bun tin.
Place the butter and caster sugar in a large bowl and cream together with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until pale and fluffy.
Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition. Fold in the flour lightly and evenly using a metal spoon.
Divide the mixture evenly between the bun cases and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
For the icing, sift the icing sugar into a bowl and stir in just enough of the water to mix to a smooth paste. Stir in a few drops of food colouring. Spread the icing over the fairy cakes and decorate with the chocolate strands and hundreds and thousands
