Diamond Jubilee Fairy Cakes

Last night I watched the highlights of the Diamond Jubilee Thames Pageant…there’s nothing more British than watching a choir in their best dresses and suits sing ‘Rule Britannia’ to the London Philharmonic Orchestra on a barge in the middle of the pouring rain on the River Thames!  
Here’s my nod to the Queen’s Jubilee:

Easy recipe: 8oz of butter, 8oz caster sugar, creamed. Add 4 eggs, one by one, and a tsp of vanilla essence then stir in 8oz self-raising flour and 1 tbsp of cold water. Place in cases and cook at 160 degrees C for 20 mins or so. Makes 24.
Decorated with raspberry jam, Dream Topping (or whipped cream) and blueberries…
Red, white and blue…
Enjoy!
