Butterfly Birthday Bash!

My sweet girl turned 2 this month! I had a hard time deciding on a cake for her this year because she doesn't really have any favorite things, or at least no one favorite thing.  She loves animals, books, Dora, Blue, Curious George, Clifford, cats, and most recently butterflies.  So I decided to go with the butterflies because I have wanted to do more painting on my cakes and butterflies are something I wanted to try, and because they are her most recent "love" so it represents her right at this moment.

I also saw a new technique for frosting a butter-cream cake and I really wanted to give it a go because the effect looks so neat! What do you think? It was really easy to do and I think this is one of my most favorite butter-cream techniques so far! Add the right finishing touches and it makes a really stunning wedding cake too.

The butterflies are all gumpaste; I airbrushed the color and hand painted the black on the wings. That part took me longer than I thought, but I was really happy with the way they turned out.

Happy birthday princess, mommy loves you!

It is beautiful, how did you do the icing?

Thanks Stephanie! To do the icing, I piped a dot with a tip 2A, and then using a small icing spatula, I smooshed the dot while dragging to the right. I hope that helps!
