    Doubled the mixture so I could make some for the school cake stall and some for home. They went down a treat at both places. Couldn't be easier to make, lovely moist mix that also tasted great. I made a royal icing to top them, recipe also from this site, which was lighter than traditional butter icing. - 01 Feb 2014
