Lemon Butterfly Cakes






Cakes:


2 cups S.R. Flour.
3/4 cup Castor Sugar.
2 Eggs.
3/4 cup of Milk.
1/2 cup softened Butter.
2 teasps of Lemon zest.




Fillings:


Lemon curd.
Raspberry jam.
Marmalade.




To finish:


Icing sugar.
Lemon jelly sweets.
Small M & M's.






Method:




Cream the sugar and butter together, add eggs and mix again.
Now put in the milk and mix a little and then slowly,
a little at a time, add the flour. I used my hand held mixer.

Stir in the lemon zest with a spoon.
Place mix into cupcake cases and cook in the oven for
20-25 minutes at 170c


Allow to cool before doing next step.
With a sharp pointed knife, cut out a circle
but not too deep. Cut the circle in half to form
the wings.

Fill the hole with Lemon Butter or as I did, some
raspberry jam and some with marmalade.
Place the wings, and dust with icing sugar.
Now add your decorations.
Done. Enjoy.
