Baking with Pampered Chef & ginger cake recipe

Simple but sweet – Mini filled sponges with jam and buttercream

Making the humble fairy cake into something a bit special! Why hadn’t I thought to do this before with fairy cakes? Mr Kipling makes them, then I saw Lakeland had a special cake pan to make them in but love Lakeland as I do at £19.99 I decide to pass.
