I'm still in "sweet" mode at the minute & decided that it was time to replicate the original cupcake...good old British butterfly cakes. I have wonderful childhood memories of baking day in our house with the delicious smell of cakes baking in the Aga filling the kitchen....it was always a treat to help cut the wings to put on the top of the buttercream & jam filling & no self respecting children's party would be held without these little cakes.
So here we are.....a miniature touch of nostalgia!

I too remember these well from my childhood. Here in Australia they were made with cream and red jelly (no jam)but either way they are yummy!!!
They look wonderful Linda! I need to try one sometime! We never had these in the US.
