It is Easter a time for family get togethers and Easter Buns.

Thsi is what I made today – mine don’t have the flour paste crosses – as I am not a fan (and I used cranberries in pale of dried cherries as the recipe suggests ).

What do you think?

Today I made White Chocolate Butterfly Cakes – we tasted some for afternoon tea and the others will be frozen

(before cutting and filling) for next weekend when we have a few visitors arriving.

These are my favourite cup cakes – until I made these today I didn’t realise the flavour was from the melted white chocolate ads so much flavour -I  thought it was just from the vanilla.

Cut off the top – add a dollop of thickened cream or cream fraiche and some berry jam then add the “wings” – dust with icing sugar.
