Sugarplum fairy cakes
- November 2018
- Makes 12
- Hands-on time 40-45 min, oven time 20-25 min, plus cooling
Soft and fluffy fairy cakes are dotted with little nuggets of marzipan and come topped with buttercream and caramel shards. A cake truly fit for a fairy.
Sugarplums aren’t crystallised plums but layers of hardened sugar, expertly wrapped around a cardamom or caraway seed. We’ve taken the flavours of this and created beautiful cardamom caramel shards to top our cakes.

If you’re not piping the icing you may not need all the buttercream. If you wrap it well it will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Make and ice the cakes up to a day ahead. Keep in a cool place in an airtight container. Wrap the sheet of caramel in non-stick baking paper and store somewhere cool and dry (not the fridge) for up to a day before using.
