Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5. Line fairy cake tray with baking cases. Beat together butter (or margarine) with sugar until pale and creamy.

Add half the flour and gradually whisk in beaten eggs. Sieve the remaining flour and baking powder and add natural vanilla extract and mix together.

Divide mixture between cake cases and bake in oven for 12-15 minutes until lightly golden. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Cut top off each bun, level with rim of cupcake case, and cut top in half.

For the icing, mix the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy adding a few drops of natural vanilla extract and milk. Spread icing over each bun thickly and evenly.
