Smarties Cakes

Ok.. So I cheated & bought a cake kit! But just look what happened when I made Cheese On Toast!!

What a great start I got off too.. Preheated the oven, put the cakes cases into the cake tray thingy , got the mixture ready then realized I didn't get any eggs!! Oops..
So after a quick trip to my local shop to stock up eggs I was back to business!!

At this point the smarties caught my attention - MINI! Mini smarties , that's just wrong! So much for me being able to dip into those before I'm finished!!

Using my snazzy new hand blender..

I think I might of added too much water to it?!

But I still poured it into the cake cases with the hope that they would rise!!

Slowly Rising! :)

Oli giving me his approval!

Making the icing .. Which I did add too much water too...

Which resulted in not being able to cover the cakes!! Oops!!

Didn't stop me from adding the faces!! (2 are missing because we tried the sponge!)

But at least I got the sponge right.. That's the first step!! I will be a expert in baking by the end of this year!! I will!

    Those are so cute! I've never seen a kit to make them before. But even without the icing, they look yummy!

    If your cakes turn out sticky on top, refrigerate or freeze them for a bit and then they'll be better. :) And keep trying!

    Congrats on the baking success! I wouldn't call your cheese on toast a failure either, I like it when the cheese gets all brown and toasted!
