Our recipe! by Amelie and Olivia

Amelie is aged 10 and Olivia is aged 7. They are sisters and their Mamgu has MND. Mamgu is a Welsh word for Grandma. They held a bakeit! fundraiser and this is their cup-cake recipe. Ask a grown-up for help if you’d like to bake. The oven gets very hot.


110g margarine
110g castor sugar
110g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 free range eggs

For the icing, use 200g icing sugar mixed with a little water until smooth but not too runny

What to do:

Whisk the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Then whisk in the eggs, one at a time. Fold in the flour a little at a time, until all mixed in. Spoon the cake mix into cup cake cases. Bake on a baking tray in the oven at 180o until golden. Take out the cakes and let them cool down. Spread on the icing. Add blue and orange sprinkles and enjoy!
