August 8, 2013 – I had a chocolate butterfly cake in a cafe at the start of the week while out of town, and it was divine. Thought I'd look online for a recipe and chose yours... well, it is/was delicious!! Made 24 last night - went down a treat with the 4 kids. Thanks for this :)



June 6, 2013 – The texture of my cupcakes didn't turn out too well. It didn't rise properly and it was extremely crumbly. I'll try making the batter without using an electric mixer next time. The cupcake tasted great though and I used Philadelphia Cream Cheese frosting which also tasted really nice.

October 10, 2011 – Incredibly easy to make and an absolute crowd-pleaser! I've made these a few times now. I also mix 1/4 cup raspberry jam with the whipped cream for an extra sweet treat. Thanks Cadbury for a deliciously chocolate and fluffy cupcake recipe that is SO easy to make!!



September 9, 2011 – Made these for my kids on Sunday they loved them. The girls enjoyed helping to put the cream and butterfly wings on.
