Oven temperature: 180 °C
1. Place the butter in a small saucepan and melt over a low heat until it becomes a light golden colour. Set aside.

2. Mix the ground almonds, icing sugar, cake flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Add the egg whites and mix thoroughly. Stir in the butter.

3. Grease a six-cup muffin tin. Divide the batter among the cups and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown but still slightly moist inside.

4. Prepare the icing: Place the icing sugar in a medium-sized heat- resistant bowl. Stir in the butter and granadilla pulp to form a thick paste. Place the bowl over a saucepan containing hot water and stir until the icing has a spreadable consistency - use it immediately on the cooled almond cakes. Decorate with butterflies made of icing sugar.
Tip: Bend the sides of the baking paper to create the impression that the butterflies are flying.
