Celebrate World Friendship Day on July 30. What better way to show your besties how much they mean to you than with a home-baked treat?
With the world being thrown into isolation periods throughout the past year, relying on friends has never been so important.
Preparation Time: 15min + 20min icing
Cooking Time: 22min
- Position an oven shelf in the centre of the oven. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan oven 160°C/Gas Mark 4. Place 12 paper or silicone cupcake cases into a cupcake tin.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat together the Trex and sugar until light and fluffy, using a wooden spoon or a hand-held electric mixer. Gradually beat in the eggs. Stir in the vanilla extract and milk.
- Sift the flour and salt into the mixing bowl and fold in gently using a large metal spoon. Share the mixture between the paper cases. Bake for 20-22min, until risen and golden. Cool in the tin for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- For the icing, beat the butter and icing sugar together until smooth and creamy. Beat in the low fat soft cheese. Split the topping into 2 batches, mixing 2-3 drops of food colouring into each batch. Pipe or spread on top the friendship cakes, then finish off with edible glitter and decorations.
