My daughter wanted a butterfly cake for her 4th birthday so I came up with this idea for a butterfly cupcake birthday cake. I made a giant cupcake using a giant cupcake mold and then decorated it using fondant icing the butterflies and flowers.
I prepared everything a few days earlier so they could dry and then I stuck the butterflies onto florist wire with royal icing. My daughter absolutely loved this cake!!
The cake was just normal sponge with butter icing in the middle and the roses on top were also made with two toned butter icing and an edible silver ball put into the center of each rose.
