We’ve been baking again.
- Moomin cakes.


- For cake

  • 2 cups/225g of Plain flour
  • 1 cup/200g Caster sugar
  • ½ a cup Milk
  • 2 whole eggs & 1 egg yolk, beaten
  • 175g of butter (softened)
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder

- For icing

  • 3 cups of icing sugar
  • ¼ a cup of water
  • Rice paper toppers (we’re using moomins, but could use any. Amazon stock loads of different designs)


Pre heat oven to 180C, 350F, Gas mark 4

Put the ingredients into a bowl

and then 

Beat eggs in a cup and then add (I’m beating with Lucas’ moomin cutlery as i thought it was fitting.

Next you need to mix all the ingredients together. (I WISH I HAVE A KITCHEN AID - I’ll have this one if anyone wants to buy me one)

Choose some cute cupcake cases, and spoon the mix in and place in your preheated oven.

Whilst cakes are cooking for approx 30minutes (keep checking back as it depends on size of cupcakes) Make the icing.

Lucas enjoyed sitting and watching the cakes bake.

Once baked and cooled decorate.

Then enjoy! yourself and your little. Remember everyone deserves a little treat every now and then. 

Enjoy yourself and have a little treat with a cup of tea when your little has a little nap!
Get baking.
