    With no photo as guidance I took things into my own hands and made these wee cupcakes to look as close to Butterflies as possible. Cake recipe is wonderful but I used this recipe, Recipe #406410, for the filling. Raspberries were the right size so they got used rather than the GIANT strawberries my market sells. Made these for dessert (pudding) on a fine Spring Day and the family delighted in them. My DH and children are British so Fairy Cakes and Butterfly cakes are held dear to their hearts. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
