Daisy and Butterfly Cupcakes

Posted on February 26th, 2009 in Cupcakes, Sugar Tools

Daisies and Butterflies by you.

As the first post besides ‘about me’, I thought I should honour the whole brown and pink theme =)  and pick a matching picture.  For her wedding, my friend Sam requested these colours and had somewhat of a butterfly decor going, so I made these gumpaste/fondant toppers for her and Adrian.  The homemade cupcakes were classic vanilla and chocolate flavours with vanilla and chocolate buttercream.

Just a little add on… it’s been a while since I posted this pic and I’ve had a lot of questions regarding how to make the flowers etc.  Really easy actually!  I used this sunflower cutter, and a sunflower center from here.  For the butterfly I used this small butterfly plunger cutter and here’s a video on making the icing swirl. I’ll post a wee tutorial soon, but suffice it to say, they’re easy to make!

*Update: You can find the tutorial here.
