Fairy Toadstool Cakes!

This morning I thought I would turn my very inexperienced baking hands to making some toadstool fairy cakes. It was very messy - but I have to confess, a lot easier with one little Bobbin - the other was at nursery. Also slightly perturbed at the amount of red food colouring I needed to add to get anywhere near close to a "toadstool" red - think there may be a few bouncing kids around here this afternoon!! I need to work on getting the icing consistency just right, but hey, they taste good! 

I best go clean up now!

They look AMAZING!! Well done! Wow, if I were a kid and came home to those I'd be insanely exited! ..actually scrap the kid bit, I'd be exited now if I came home to those!! :)

Wow, yummy - almost too good to eat!

these look fab! I've been baking today too - icing biscuits - I bought red food gel on ebay specifically for it to get a really deep shade of red, you only need a couple of drops, as opposed to a whole bottle of normal food colouring, haha! will be posting pics on my blog tomorrow if you want to see the colour it gives x

Amanda, they are just super fab. Charlie has asked for a Mario birthday party (in May), these would be perfect, might nick your idea. I promise to post my wonderful prize this weekend, but we have had news about Charlies health and it has put my blogging on hold. Hugs Amanda....x

Thanks all! Jenny - have signed up to your blog so will check out your biscuits today - definitely think the food gel sounds like a better plan! Amanda - they were so easy to make, they would be perfect for a Mario party! I hope Charlie is ok, don't even worry yourself about the blog post, the health of your little ones is far, far more important! A big bobbin bear hug to you all...xx

Just brilliant. I have a real thing for toadstools - must add these to my "to bake" list. Can you imagine them for a fairy party?!

those are adorable. they would be perfect at a little tea party. cupcakes are always a crowd pleaser, i've even found a few good vegan recipes for my non dairy friends!
