This 3rd Birthday Butterfly Fairy Cake is my very first “novelty” birthday cake I have done, it was for my eldest daughter’s 3rd birthday. I used a heart shaped cake tin, baked 3 hearts and split one heart in half to complete the bottom of the wings.
I used a loaf pan for the butterfly body and cut and shaped the edges for a rounder effect. I used the birthday candles as the butterfly’s antenna’s and an extra musical candle to make up the 3rd birthday candle. For the patterns on the wings I just cut out shapes on paper then gently placed on top and poured the sprinkles over.
I got the happy birthday cake decoration from the bakery section at the supermarket for free when I asked about them.
