Easter Chick Cakes

I thought it would be fun to make some pretty presents for Easter and so I made these little chicken fairy cakes.

Using a basic sponge of four eggs, two teaspoons of baking powder,225g castor sugar, butter and self raising flour all mixed together and  then spooned in to paper cases and cooked for 15minutes.

I then made up some butter icing which as you can see curdled I think was down to my butter being too cold.  Once I had spread the butter icing onto the cakes I coloured some marzipan and made beaks for the chicks and used small chocolate coated balls for their eyes.

Happy Easter Everyone
