Here it is. Cream 125g butter, 1 tsp vanilla essence, and 1/2 cup caster sugar until light and fluffy. Add 2 eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift 1 cup flour and 2 tsps baking powder together. Fold into creamed mixture. Stir in 1/4 cup milk. Place 12 paper patty cases in patty tins. Spoon mixture in evenly. Bake at 190 deg for 15 mins or until cakes spring back when lightly touched. Transfer to cooling rack. When cold, decorate.

There are a few variations - do you want them too?

Here are the variations. Butterfly Cakes - Cut a slice from the top of each. Cut this in half. Place a tspful of butter filling or whipped cream in each cavity. Arrange wings on cakes. Dust with icing sugar.

Queen Cakes - Stir in 1/2 cup sultanas before adding milk.

Orange Cakes - Omit vanilla essence. Add 2 tsps grated orange rind. Ice with orange icing.

Chocolate Cakes - Omit 2 Tbspns flour. Replace with 2 Tbspns cocoa. Ice with chocolate icing.
