Butterfly Cake

June 2010:  I was so pleased with how this cake turned out.  It’s still one of my favorites.  I used gumpaste for the butterflies, so they would get hard and stand up off the cake.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to make them, but I printed out two sizes of a butterfly image and used them to cut the shapes.  I originally meant to have the butterflies more detailed, but once I started putting them on the cake, I loved them just the way they were.  I think they way their wings were in various stages of opening made them really look like they were flying across the cake.

This was a vanilla cake with a strawberry filling and buttercream frosting under the fondant.
