Top Hats and Butterfly buns. Sounds interesting na! It is so easy to make and absolutely tasty. I actually bookmarked this recipe from Good to know and adapted it to my own style. You wouldnt  believe my Jr started finishing it off even before I started making these buns. You can also call  it fairy cakes.
I always love to use my mini muffin case so I made these buns in my mini muffin case. You can also use your normal muffin case. Sending this recipe to  BBD#28 guest hosted by Rachel event by Zorra and also to Champa's Bake-Off event

Allow them to cool.
For the icing beat the sugar, butter and vanilla essence till soft peaks form.

Top Hat Buns:
Slice off the top of the bun and fill it with a little cream and place the top again.
