These were another of Mum’s afternoon tea and supper delights. They always seemed to me to be a little more fancy that my birthday butterfly cakes. I haven’t made them or eaten them in a long time, but they were great back when I was little.
I always associate these little cakes with my birthday parties. They were a treat Mum would make to put on the party table and I guess after two sons she was more than happy to make something ‘girlie’ for my birthday. She did make them at other times for afternoon tea with her friends and for suppers, but I still think of them as my birthday butterflies.
