    made these for my son's football team who were playing an away match on Easter Sunday. The team won their match and the cakes were a huge success. Will definitely become an Easter tradition.

    Gorgeous and really easy. Doubled the recipe and made with Fairtrade cocoa, chocolate and mini eggs for my daughter's school's Fairtrade Easter tea. They seemed to go down really well.

    These cakes are fandabbydosey!! They are the easiest, and by far the best cakes I have ever made. I have made these now on numerous occasions, and every time they go down a storm. However, I do adapt the recipe slightly. Instead of putting all the ingredients togther, I cream the butter and sugar first, then add the remaining ingredients. Next time I am going to make them in muffin cases, and pipe the icing on it big swirls.
