I made this Fancy Nancy Bonjour Butterfly Cake for my daughter’s fifth birthday. The cake itself is two layers of a 10 x 10 square vanilla cake (one cake mix per pan). I frosted the cake with white buttercream frosting. The Fancy Nancy topper was purchased from a local cake decorating supply store. I star-tipped in white buttercream around the upper and lower edges of the cake, then used a small writing tip to add pink dot accents on every third star.
The butterflies on the side of the cake (my daughter’s idea) were made with rolled fondant from a four-pack of neon-colored fondant pouches. I used a small butterfly-shaped cookie cutter. This was my first experience with rolled fondant, and it couldn’t have been easier. After placing them on the sides of the cake, I piped yellow buttercream accents on them using a small writing tip. Purple glittery candles were placed on the upper righthand corner.
