This Homemade 1st Birthday Butterfly Cake was a SUPER easy cake. It was my first decorated cake for my daughter’s 1st birthday. The butterfly cake was a Wilton’s mold. And the bottom was just a large round cake pan, big enough to fit the butterfly on top of it. For the cake I used a box cake mix.
I did vanilla cake for the butterfly and chocolate cake for the bottom. Once the cakes were cooled, I did a crumb layer and placed the butterfly on top of the round cake. I made my own butter cream frosting- recipe is Wilton’s recipe from the packaging(super easy). I frosted the round cake then used a star tip and squeeze and pull up until completely decorated. I stored it in the refrigerator overnight and pulled it out a few hours before the party started.
The cake was super moist and the frosting was really rich and buttery. I can’t wait until next year to make another!
