I nearly always make tiny buns for a birthday because the children (in my experience) only want a little taste of everything and I am sick of finding half eaten buns around the house days later!!!
Preheat the oven to 190c.
Cream the butter, add the sugar and beat until light.
Add the beaten eggs gradually, then the vanilla and lastly fold in the flour and baking powder, bring together. (or put all the ingredients into a food processor and whiz up until it comes together!!)
Put into mini bun cases sitting in mini bun trays and cook for 7-10 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack, before you ice them.
Icing and Coloured Sugar:
Sieve 100g icing sugar into a bowl and add about 2 tsp of boiling water and a DROP (or more if you want good bright gaudy icing!) of your chosen food colouring.
Beat with a wooden spoon and add another drop of water if it is too stiff to spread over the top of a bun, add more food colouring if you want a deeper colour!
If you have made it too wet, just add more icing sugar.
This will make enough to ice about 20-30 mini buns.
I like to make a few different colours.
Then when the icing is made, take a small palette knife, or a table knife and dip it into a cup of boiling water. This will make it easier to spread the icing and it will give it a nice glossy shine.
Then if you want to put a smartie, or chocolate button or whatever, put it on now, before the icing sets.
To make the couloured sugar, put 100g of icing sugar and 1 or 2 drops of your chosen colouring into a sieve, and sieve into a bowl - then sieve it all again.
Keep doing this (maybe another 2 times) until the food colouring has tinted the sugar. Then spread a very thin layer of icing and dip the top of the bun into the coloured sugar.Cute !
If you want to you can add rasisins or chocolate chips to the flour

Step 6: Conclusions Now you're finished! A professional looking canvas at a very low cost. Here's a few notes that might help as well. If you are stretching a lot of paintings at once, it might be easier to cut all the wood at once but just make sure to keep the pieces together. If your painting is especially large then a cross brace or two may be necessary to create a strong frame. It is a matter of preference but generally if the painting is larger than 3 feet across then a cross brace would be a good idea. For this simply use a 1” x 2” strip cut square and staple it (on both sides of the frame) in the center. The should not be used for the brace pieces. Good luck with framing!

Step 5: Stretch the Canvas Now you are finally ready to stretch the canvas. To do this lay a piece of paper down on a clean surface, and then the painting face down. Line up the frame so that the molding is against the canvas. To stretch this pull one side of the canvas up and around and staple it in the center of that side. Next take the canvas pliers, stretch the canvas on the opposite side and staple in the center. Although this can be done alone, a second pair of hands might make this step a little easier. Flip the painting over and make sure that it lines up properly with the frame. If it does you can begin stapling the rest of these sides. On the one side of the sides with a staple in it, place two staples, approximately 2”-3” on either side of the center staple while stretching the canvas. Do the same on the opposite side of the painting. Continue to work your way outwards towards the corners, until there you are about 1” from the corner. Next repeat this process along the other two sides of the painting, stretching the canvas tight. When you have completed this you can fold the corners of the painting as you would a present and staple them to the strip in the back. It is a matter of preference if you want the folds on the top and bottom or sides of you painting but being consistent will make them look better.
