Making butterfly cupcakes

 Today I made some butterfly cupcakes from Mary Berry's cookbook. They turned out well, even if they didn't look perfect...
Here's how I made them:
For the cupcakes:
100g of baking margarine- if you have some of that squeezy Flora stuff that will work too.
100g of caster sugar
2 eggs
100g of self raising flour (I think it's called something different in America- I'm not sure of the name)
1tsp of baking powder (")
For the icing:
350g of icing sugar
175g of margarine

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees c. Put all of the ingredients into a bowl and beat with a handheld electric whisk. After about 2 minutes the mixture should be nearly white- this shows it has lots of air in it. Spoon the mixture into 12 baking paper cases and put in the oven for 15 (ish) minutes. Once they come out cut a hole in the middle, slice the mixture that comes out in half. Fill the hole with butter icing and place the wing shapes on. Repeat for all of the cakes.
