Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and springy to the touch. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
4.
Carefully cut round the tops of the cakes with a cutter or sharp knife and remove the top of each cake. Slice the tops in half to form 2 ‘wings’.
5.
Spoon about 1 teaspoon of jam on top of each cake.
6.
For the cream cheese topping: beat the butter until soft, then beat in the cheese until blended. Sift in the icing sugar and stir in the vanilla until smooth.

Spoon into a piping bag and pipe on top of each cake. Spoon into a piping bag and pipe swirls on top of the jam. Place a sugar flower in the centre of each cream swirl.
8.
Press the ‘wings’ into the cream and sift icing sugar over the top.
