Actually, scrap that. It is use by today and are for cakes to be eaten tomorrow. Damn. Will have to make normal icing or buttercream for the top. DS2 wants 100s and 1000s. Which will be better - icing or butter cream?

Not unless you add a special product to it.

Butter cream is much nicer than icing.

Butter cream it is. grin

I can't find my butter cream recipe <sigh>

Isn't it just softened unsalted butter with sifted icing sugar beaten into it until you get the sweetness you want? I love demerara icing sugar.

I think so but I wanted to make what I made before.

I have a plan....

Right, butter cream made - chocolate flavour.

Shall I do butterfly buns or just spread it on top? Either way, it has to have 100s and 1000s. DS2's request.

Butterflies! grin

I did one butterfly then improvised as the wings were going to be too small.

I dug out a round piece of cake, filled the hole with chocolate buttercream and some 100s and 1000s then out the circle of cake on top.

Yum. grin

Have been in this kitchen all day....

Could've said they were moth cakes instead! grin

I would but I can just hear DS2 now "But they aren't moths, Mummy" hmm

I asked him if he wanted fairy cakes to take to playschool and had a right whinge. I explained they were called that as they are small and light but he is now taking sprinkle buns to playschool..hmmgrin

No, but you can freeze single cream.

Thanks. The cream went in our dinner and I made chocolate buttercream instead.
