Butterfly Garden

Spring is in the air so I put together this little 6" butterfly garden cake. I used a leaf stamp for the leaves to create the veins. The butterflies are edible and attached to florist wires using a small piece of fondant.

I personally think that florist wires should never be inserted directly into the cake. This is because, these wires have contents that aren't safe to be consumed, especially by kids. So I inserted a fresh flower cake spike into the center of the cake and placed all the wires into the spikes. This way, the when the cake is ready to be cut, all you have to do is remove the cake spike and cut the cake up.

This cake was for a simple family get together on a beautiful spring day and the kids went nuts over the butterflies.
