4.    Allow to cool completely before using.

5.    Crumble the cake either by rubbing with your hands or using a food processor.

6.    Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add the butter and beat until smooth and creamy for about 4-5 minutes with an electric whisk or machine.

12.    Place into petit four cases.

I have been working with your cake mixes & they have all been very successful indeed. Our one failed experiment was the Chocolate Rum Truffles from your recipe. They were wonderful, but I was rather (to be honest, extremely) generous with the rum. My wife said we’d need an alcohol licence to sell them at the coffee morning so we, and a few of our over-21 friends, were forced to eat them!
