Butter cream diaster

As ive been on annual leave for two weeks i have had a lot of spare time on my hands, so to keep me busy i decided to bake some Easter themed cakes. 
The cakes in themselves turned out okay, however the butter cream didn't, it had gone runny on me, i did try to save it by adding more icing sugar but that didnt work, so i just stuck with what i had. They still taste nice though and thats all that matters really isn't it?! 
And how cute are these sprinkles? I found them in Asda and just had to have them they are sooo cute!

This is how i made them.


  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g soft butter
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
For the topping
  • 200g soft butter
  • 200g icing sugar
  • Sprinkles
  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees and place a cake cases into your bun tray.
  2. Put the sugar and butter into a bowl and mix together. Sift in the flour. 
  3. Break the eggs into the bowl and add the vanilla extract. Mix everything together.
  4. Divide the mixture between the cake cases and bake in the oven for 20 minutes until springy.
  5. Leave the cakes too cool.
  6. To  make the butter cream, mix the butter and icing sugar together.
  7. Spread the mixture onto your cakes (or even pipe) and add your sprinkles.
