For the cakes:

  • Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla until just combined. Sift in flour and pour in the milk, and beat at low speed until combined.
  • Pour mixture into muffin cases and bake at 180 for 15 mins.
  • Frosting:

  • Cream the butter and confectioners' sugar with the milk until soft and light. It should be the consistency of light frosting.
  • I usually add a few drops of pink food dye as well.
