    Beautiful shortcake - thanks for sharing - just what I was looking for!  I didn't use the butterfly, just put the butter, sugar, eggs & vanilla all together and mixed for 2 min, sp 4. And it also makes a very big mixture, I used a 32 x 23cm tin which fitted it perfectly. Very yummy tmrc_emoticons.)
