This butterfly cake is so adorable! I made it for a Spring baby shower and am super excited for the mom-to-be to see it. It’s a basic white cake made from a butterfly pan and butter cream frosting. I decided to frost the entire cake with a star tip (#21). After a while your hands will begin to get sore from the piping bag, but the finished product is definitely worth it.
I recently made this stacked cake with a fondant bow. Needless to say, it took me quite a few hours from baking the cake, cooling, stacking, icing and then placing the fondant on the cake. The bow was made four days in advance with fondant and gum-paste. By using gum-paste, it allows the bow to dry and harden. I bought the fondant from the local craft store but am really anxious to make the fondant from scratch. It should definitely be an adventure. I think it turned out quite well for my first shot at a fondant stacked cake!
