Butterflies and Princesses

These Vanilla Bean Cupcakes were made using the recipe posted here on Cakes Decor by ButRCream (http://cakesdecor.com/ButRCream/blog/92) and I can say they are very yummy. They are covered in a pink vanilla buttercream topped with fondant flowers, leaves, sugar pearls, rock candy and gelatin butterflies. The butterflies and the wands have pink disco dust for accent. The butterflies were inspired by the lovely and talented Jenn at Prima Plus Cakes (http://cakesdecor.com/cakes/13230).

So pretty! Love the gelatin butterflies.

Sugar Tales ...

Thanks Benni! The butterflies were so much easier to do than I expected! They don’t necessarily taste the greatest, but they certainly make for a big wow factor.

very beautiful!! is there a tutorial for the butterflies?

Sugar Tales ...

YES! Silly me for not mentioning it! We used this tutorial that Jenn found on flicker. http://www.flickr.com/photos/19492672@N08/4546965650/in/set-72157623918590366/

I followed it for the most part with just a couple of exceptions. I didn’t have any airbrush colour so I mixed some americolor gel into a little bit of water and and mixed it and then used that to colour the gelatin when called for. I also used the veins on the veining sheet so that they were sticking up and not in like the tutorial suggested. I think Jenn did it the way they mentioned and had a little bit of trouble getting them off. I had no trouble at all.

Hope that helps!
