Flutter By

Most Saturdays the ladies of our WI have a stall at a local church. They sell homemade cakes, sausage rolls, scones and jars of their jams and marmalade. The goods can be eaten there with a cup of strong percolated coffee or taken away in recycled ice-cream tubs. The current cupcake craze has passed them by so there is always an irresistible array of fairy cakes and, my favourite, butterfly cakes. This week's butterfly cake was eaten at home off the latest addition to my 'granny plate' collection.

    I, too am a great reader of Dorothy Whipple.
    I now live in the US so am thrilled to see your butterfly cake above.
    In the US 'cup cakes' with much too much toxic colored icing are all the rage.
    No one calls them fairy cakes here.
