How Many Sprinkles

So today Gracie and I decided to a little bit more baking with our Dr Oetker goodies. Cake of choice was fairy cakes, an oldie but a goodie.

We still had lots of sprinkles left over and we had a blue and yellow food colouring, so I thought it would be good to have different colour icing.

Here is the recipe we used to make the cakes :

To make you firstly have to preheat your oven to 180C, then :

* cream the butter and sugar together
* beat in the eggs a little at a time
* stir in the vanilla extract
* fold in the flour and then add milk til the mixture is a soft consistency
* using a spoon place the mixture into the paper casing until they are half full
* bake for 8-10 minutes then place on a cooling rack

Once the cakes were baked and cooled the icing needed to be put on, so to make the icing :

We had three bowls. Firstly I mixed the icing sugar and water together in the big bowl, I then separated the mixture into the three bowls and put blue in one, yellow in one and then mixed the two in the last bowl to make green.

Now it was Gracie's time to shine, the placing of the sprinkles. The little monkey actually managed to empty all three pots of sprinkles.

And finally the big reveal, ta da!!!



  1. Thank you :) Gracie had fun making them xx

  2. Bob loves baking! I haven't tried cakes with her yet as she is only young and likes to eat lots of mixture but we live making biscuits and crispy buns. x

  3. Lol Gracie loves "cleaning" the bowl at the end, no food is wasted in this house :) x
