Two Tone Fairy Cakes

We decided to do a bit of baking this weekend and we wanted something different so we made some two tone fairy cakes 

We used a simple fairy cake mix which makes 12 fairy cakes.

100g of self raising flour
1tsp of baking powder
100g butter 
100g caster sugar 
2 large eggs 
2 tbsp milk
Food colouring ( pink & yellow) 

For icing 
Icing sugar
Vanilla essence 
Food colouring
Sweets to decorate.

Add flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the butter, eggs and sugar. Beat together until well mixed. If the mixture is a little thick, mix in a little milk ( or water) . 

Evenly divide the mixture between two bowls and add a few drops of different food colouring and mix well. 
Then add into cake cases a spoon of different colour in each half and bake for 12-18 minutes on gas mark 4. 

To make the butter icing add butter and icing together, add vanilla essence and food colouring until its a paste. Add and use sweets to decorate.
