      Awesome recipe, I made as recipe stated but I made mine on Gluten free self raising flour instead, the family can't tell the difference, it made 24 perfect height cakes for butterflys, I love recipes that say 24 and that's how many you get, not many recipes are correct in their quantity, a very quick easy recipe to whip up, will definitely be making very soon.
