Perfect for any garden party, these are as pretty as a picture. In this recipe, they are iced in very pale lavender and green pastels to complement the flowers used, but you can use any colours of your choice. For a large party or wedding, a stand of these on each table would make a fabulous centrepiece.



Preheat the oven to 170°C/fan 160°C/340°F/gas mark 3½.

Line 2 fairy cake tins with paper cases. Divide the batter evenly between them (make sure each is only just over half full, as you need space for the icing to set flat on top).
