Whatever happened to Fairy Cakes?
I came across this advert whilst in my local building society. Although I have acquired all 3 of the free recipes, I was a bit disappointed with the mention of cupcakes. When I was a child it was Fairy Cakes. This conjured up something light and magical and quintessentially English. Cupcake on the otherhand belies something kitch and heavily laiden with colour and decoration.
So what has happened to our traditional 'Fairy cake'? I think I need to do further investigation into the origins of our delicate treat.
