    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


    Quick and easy, so anyone can bake them, but still delicious with icing and without!  -  29 Aug 2014
