Colourful Party Buns

 gluten-free dairy-free

Ingredients:

4 oz (100g) gluten-free flour
1 x 5 ml spoon (1 teaspoon) gluten-free baking powder
1/2 x 5 ml spoon ( 1/2 teaspoon) xanthan gum
4 oz (100g) dairy-free margarine
4 oz (100g) caster sugar
2 medium eggs, beaten
1 x 5 ml spoon (1 teaspoon) vanilla extract
    For the icing:
100g (4 oz) sieved icing sugar
1 x 15 ml spoon (1 tablespoon) warm water
Pink, blue and yellow food colouring 
Decorations for the top of each bun

What to do:
  1. Preheat your oven to 190'C / 375'F / Gas Mark 5.  Place 12 paper bun cases in patty tins.
  2. Sift the gluten-free flour, gluten-free baking powder and xanthan gum together. Using the all-in-one method for cakes, put the flour, dairy-free margarine and sugar in a bowl with the vanilla extract.
  3. Whisk until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  4. Divide equally between the 12 paper bun cases and bake for 15 minutes, until firm to the touch. Allow to completely cool.
  5. Meanwhile, make the icing by dividing the icing sugar into three lots and mixing with very little warm water and food colouring. Spread a little of each colour on the buns and place a decoration on top.
