Made these this week for a local toddler group, everyone loved them and had many requests for the recipe. A lot of people said they weren't keen on mince pies but loved these cakes. Great alternative to mince pies.

Made these as an alternative to mince pies and they flew out of the tin at college and there were some very happy plumbers and electricians at my husbands the idea of brandy butter to make butterfly cakes - inspired!

I made these cakes and converted some to butterfly cakes using brandy butter as the filling. Delicious!

I made these to try them out as a possible alternative to mince pies for Christmas. They taste wonderful and have gone down a storm with my work colleagues and family!! I substituted the mixed spice with a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon instead to give them a Christmasy feel. I will be making them again for Christmas.
