I think I may have just secured the Mother of the Year Award, for Miss Frugal’s Christmas party at school tomorrow I’ve made chocolate fairy cakes with Nutella icing. They looked very Domestic Goddess-like until I let her loose with the sprinkles!
Because I’m a lovely person, I’m even going to share the recipe with you so you can impress your kids too….
250g icing sugar
80g butter / margarine
90g Nutella (slighly melted – 30 seconds in the microwave does the trick)
Because I’m lazy, I used an electric whisk to mix the butter and the icing sugar into a breadcrumby texture. Then I added the milk and whisked for a bit longer before adding the melted Nutella and whisking for another few minutes.
The mixture was more than enough for the 24 cakes we made, so you might want to reduce the quantities if you’re not making as many cakes as we did…. Or you could just leave it as it is and have fun licking the bowl out 😉
