i need to make a smash cake in the shape of a butterfly... what would be the best way to do it without cutting away or wasting so much cake? i thought about the mini wonder molds, cut in half for the wings, but i cant get a visuale image of it. i could make a 6 in. cake and cut it out, but really rather use as much of the baked cake as possible. i have the mini wondermold pan, and the 6 in round....and creative suggestions??
I have a large butterfly cookie cutter that I found at wal-mart. I don't know if you have a walmart nearby or not, but if you do you could look for the cutter. It's plastic and about 5" wide so you could use it on the 6" cake and not loose too much cake.
My other suggestion would be to find a butterfly picture on the internet and blow it up to about 6" size. Cut it out and lay it over your cake as a guide to trim.
