Children's difficulty rating: medium Top tip: Dip a spoon in hot water for 30 seconds before measuring the treacle to make it slide off the spoon.
Ask an adult to preheat the oven to 190°C (170° fan) / 375F / gas 5.
Put the cake ingredients in a bowl and beat together with a wooden spoon while you count to 50 for a really fluffy batter.
Fill 12 paper cases in a cupcake tray with the mixture then ask an adult to put the tray in the oven. After 15 minutes, they need to test the cakes with a skewer - if it comes out clean the cakes are done. Leave to cool completely.
Sieve the icing sugar into a bowl, then stir in 1 - 2 tsp of water a few drops at a time until it forms a thick icing.
Spread the icing onto the cakes with the back of a spoon and decorate with sugar flowers.
