Easy 40 Minutes



For the recipe  Unicorn Fairy Cakes

For the Cupcakes:

10 Dr. Oetker Muffin Cases
75 g Margarine
75 g Caster Sugar
1 Medium Egg
30 ml Whole Milk
2.5 ml Dr. Oetker Sicilian Lemon Extract
100 g Plain Flour
1 Dr. Oetker Baking Powder Sachet
100 g Dr. Oetker White Chocolate Chips

To Decorate:

75 g Dr. Oetker Ready to Roll White Fondant Icing
Dr. Oetker Pink Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr. Oetker Pink Easy Swirl Cupcake Icing
Dr. Oetker Fairy Princess
about 3 g Icing Sugar , To Dust




For the Cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 190˚C (170˚C fan assisted oven, 375˚F, gas mark 5). Put the Baking Cases in 10 fairy cake tins. Put the margarine in a mixing bowl with the caster sugar, egg, milk and Lemon Extract. Sift the flour and Baking Powder on top and, using an electric whisk on a low speed, gently whisk the ingredients together.


Increase the speed and whisk for a few seconds until well blended and creamy. Stir in the Chocolate Chips.


Divide the mixture equally between the cake cases and smooth over the tops. Bake for about 20 minutes until risen and lightly golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


To Decorate

To decorate, knead the Regal Ice in your hands a few times to make it soft and pliable. Divide in half. Flatten one piece slightly and add 3 drops Pink Gel Food colour on top. Fold the icing over the gel to enclose it and carefully knead the icing until the colour is evenly mixed. Add more colour in the same way to achieve a pretty pink shade. You may need to dust your fingers with a little icing sugar if the icing becomes too sticky.


Lightly dust the work surface with icing sugar. Divide the plain white Regal Ice and the Pink coloured into 2 equal pieces and roll each into a thin sausage about 20cm (8inch) long.


Carefully twist a plain length of white Regal Ice and a Pink length together, then continue twisting gently to make a tightly coiled length about 24cm (9 ½ inch) long.


Cut into 5 lengths and shape each to a slight point at one end to resemble a unicorn horn, and flatten the other end. Place the icing horns, flat side down on a sheet of baking parchment and leave in a dry place for about 2 hours or overnight, to dry out a little. Repeat with the other 2 lengths of Regal Ice.


To Serve

When ready to serve, follow the directions on the can of Easy Swirl, and pipe the tops of the cakes with swirls of pink icing using the star nozzle. Decorate with Sprinkles and gently push a unicorn horn into the centre of each cake. Your fairy cakes are now ready to serve and enjoy!
