This makes about 60 small cakes in paper cases which are always successful at a party — perhaps for their exuberant colour once they are iced. I use tiny (3.5 × 2 cm/1½ × ¾ inch) paper cases. Make up half the quantity of icing at a time if you want to make two colours, a quarter quantity if you want four colours, rather than making the whole quantity and dividing it up to colour, and then having the icing harden as you work. Plain iced are good, but you could add extra decorations on top — jelly beans, hundreds and thousands, silver balls, smarties or other sweets. When I am in an all-natural mood I use beetroot juice to colour the icing.
