Max's Cakes

The other day I asked Max what he wanted to do and he promptly told me that if we didn't make cakes then he would be sad. So of course that's what we did. I made the basic cake mixture and let him go a bit crazy with the toppings. 

Mummy's Basic Boring Cakes
4oz self raising flour
4oz butter
4oz caster sugar
tsp baking powder
2 eggs.

Mix everything together and heap into cupcake cases and pop into a preheated oven (180 degrees) for about 15 minutes or until they are golden and come out clean when a knife get's poked in. 

Then Max decided what he wanted on his toppings:

- First of all we crushed some Crunchie bars in a bowl, then added some mini marshmallows and stirred until they were evenly mixed.

- Then we added some pre-bought buttercream (yes I am lazy!) to the cakes. Our piping bag broke so we ended up spooning it on.

- Finally we sprinkled the mixture on top and added some salted caramel sauce on top of it all.

Max thinks they were perfect, I thought that I might need some insulin after!
