Mariposa Cupcakes

These mariposa cakes (butterfly in Spanish) were made using the vanilla cupcake recipe from the Primrose bakery book - its the first time I've used it and I'm impressed, the cakes rose to a good dome and are still very light and fluffy inside.

I used their white chocolate buttercream though and its' far too sweet for me, it made my teeth ache!!  I think I'll stick to my swiss merignue next time.  When I cut into the cakes to make the wings I stuck a (massive) blob of strawberry jam in them just for because I could!
