Chocolate “butterfly” cakes

Perfect for a birthday party. If you have a child with special dietary needs, you can make something that looks festive enough that their friends won’t know the difference, but will be safe for your child to eat.

  • Make a batch of Chocolate macadamia muffins or other muffins or cupcakes of your choice (suitable for your diet)
  • Whip up some cream (if you’re using raw cream, you will need to plan ahead)
  • Slice the tops off the muffins (about ½ an inch thick).
  • Spread cream on the top of the muffin.
  • Cut the top in half, then place the tops back on the cream, but at an angle, to resemble butterfly wings.


If you’re dairy free, whip up some coconut cream instead
