  1. Ok so I had the white flower cake, when Kelly bought them over to my desk she had them in lovely transparent square cases with a clear Cherie Kelly sticker. They looked so professional- anyways thanks for putting the recipe up Kelly, I thought it was the perfect vanilla sponge for a cupcake. They look stunning!
