Challenge #3

Can you draw a fairy cake?

Did you know: In Britain cupcakes are called fairy cakes. Fairy cakes use a lighter glacé icing compared to the butter cream used by American bakers. They also are traditionally made with a lighter sponge cake as opposed to the thicker butter cakes used in our cupcakes. Alternatively, a fairy cake is a type of cupcake with its top cut off and replaced in two pieces, like wings. These are also called “butterfly cupcakes.” FOR PARENTS: While your child is drawing, enjoy these fairy cakes from Instagram:  #fairycakes
