  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases. Beat the butter with the caster sugar, 1 egg, self-raising flour and 1/2 tsp vanilla essence, until smooth.

Spoon into a piping bag ftted with a star nozzle and pipe onto each cake, creating a swirl efect. Decorate each with hundreds and thousands and a glacé cherry.
