How to make it

  • Pastry Shell
  • Mix together all ingredients
  • roll out like a pie dough
  • Cut to be about the size of a cupcake shell
  • mold the dough into cupcake pan that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray (I like bakers joy for this recipe)
  • Once all the shells have been placed into the cupcake pans, drop 1/2 teaspoon of jelly into the bottom of each shell
  • Cake filling
  • Mix cake mix according to box, adding the above additional ingredients
  • Spoon cake into the shells with the jelly.
  • Fill as you would a cupcake, about 3/4 ways full
  • Bake at 350 for about 30 min
  • Tops should be a dark golden brown
  • Allow to cool till the cake feels cool to the touch.
  • Slip a knife in besides each cake to help lift it out and finish cooling completely
  • White icing
  • Mix all icing ingredients together, adding water one tablespoon at a time until the icing is nice and creamy.
  • If it is too funny, just add powdered sugar to it
  • Spread icing on each of the cakes and allow the icing to harden
  • Fern design
  • With the remaining icing add some cocoa powder to give it a rich chocolate color and taste.
  • Using a plastic baggie, put icing in bag, snip off a small piece of the corner of baggie.
  • Pipe a vertical line down the center of the icing
  • Now place two V's over the chocolate line to make what looks like a tree (fern)
  • I didn't take the above picture, but it will give you an idea what they should look like.

    thanks, have been looking for this recipe, we've always known them as Fern Tarts, no wonder I couldn't find the recipe. Even the Scottish bakeries call them tarts. Dying to try them. The ones in the bakeries are ok but...not great!
