Divide the mixture between the muffin cases and bake for 15-20 mins until risen, golden and firm to the touch. Transfer to a cooling rack. Leave to cool.
To make the butter cream, place the butter in a bowl and sift over the icing sugar. Beat until smooth.
Slice the tops off each cake and fill the cavities with a little butter cream and jam. Cut each sliced top in half and arrange on top of the filling to resemble butterfly wings. Dust lightly with icing sugar.
