Preheat oven to 170⁰C. Place 12 cup cake cases into fairy cake baking trays. Beat the sugar and oil together. Add eggs one at a time, beating in between each, then add the flour, milk, baking powder, salt, vanilla paste and extract. Beat until all is just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared cases until 2/3 full. Place in the oven and bake for appx 20 mins, until springy to touch / a skewer inserted comes out clean and they are slightly browned.

When they are ready, take out of the oven and allow to cool completely before frosting.
