These soft cakes are topped with pistachio butter cream and dried cherries.

I’m sorry about the European measurements. These recipes are copied straight from my notes in my individual production pastry class. I’m putting them here on just a pinch for my own posterity. If you would like to convert the measurements, I recommended using this conversions calculator: southernfood.about.com/...blconv.htm
