  7. Hi Holler. I did large cupcakes and they took 20 minutes, the smaller fairy cakes would only take 10 (or perhaps even 8)

  17. I like Rachel's new series - have you tried the recipe for the buttercream she put on the poppyseed cake, it had no icing sugar in it and would be a good one to have if I ran out!
