Butterfly Cake by helenhall

Butterfly Cake

I did promise to play along with the current Tag challenge.

I picked BUTTERFLY and then CAKE which instantly reminded me of the butterfly cakes Mum used to make for afternoon teas with guests. Hers were filled with jam and cream and always a treat.

Well I am running a cake sale next weekend, so thought to make a batch of these and put in the freezer today. I kept one back to photograph for the challenge. I hope this photograph will do, because the cake is now gone. It went very well with my cup of tea.

It has home made lemoncurd to fill the middle. I'll get some cream to add in the ones I sell next week.

Of course the butterfly cake may not be something you are familiar with. You make a fairy cake (you know - the cakes we used to have before the 'big is better' cup cakes came into fashion here in the UK). then cut a circle out of the middle. Add your choice of filling into the hole created and then cut the circle of cake in half, replacing the two semicircles back to back on top of your cake, in the shape of butterfly wings.

Now I think I will make a Gingerbread - that keeps well.
Mmmm, love butterfly cakes and lemon curd sounds delicious. I much prefer little cakes like this. Gingerbread sounds good too. Good luck at the cake sale - only wish I could be there. Oh, I do like your photo too.

What a perfect way to meet your tag challenge -- and make something that reminds you of your mother, AND end up with something yummy to photograph! The tonality of your photo is lovely!
