Guests love having individual cakes. Bake a sponge, then use circular cutters in two sizes to make mini cakes.
Ice each one. Stick a small cake onto a larger one with butter cream icing and pipe a border at the paste and middle.
Put flour-paste butterfly cookie cutter, bend the wings and leave to dry. Attach with royal icing.
