Butterfly cake

Isn't she pretty?
This little cake is quite special.
Recently my family had a re-union picnic that I could not attend as I was recovering from spinal surgery.
My aunty is a great cook!
She knows I love her butterfly cakes...
she gave two of the precious little bundles to my mother to freeze for me.
This week my parents came to visit me and Mum brought the little cakes with her.
I LOVE them so much. The cake is light and moist. The mock cream is light and delightfully not too sweet......Bliss!
These little cakes made a huge journey to get to me, starting on the wide bay coast they travelled 165km to the picnic spot, then 175km to my parents house and then 114 to my house.
A journey totalling about 450 km.
They are gone now, I ate them.
Blow the diet!
I stick to it faithfully MOST days but eating these little cakes was pure pleasure and not just because of their deliciousness.
I miss out on so many activities due to being housebound with spinal troubles.
This lovely gesture was so touching.
Thank you Aunty Sue.
