I think it looks wonderful!! The butterfiles are so cute, the fondant is smooth and your little pearls look wonderful! Great job thumbs_up.gif

I forgot to mention...your rose is PERFECT! icon_lol.gif

I completely agree! Flawless work. What are the butterflies made of?

Have you already posted it in the galleries yet? I would like to put it in my favorites.

I have to ask, like another poster, how did you do the butterflies? I'm guessing they're chocolate, but are they molds or what?

Yes it is in my photos. The butterflies are made of flower/ gum paste rolled out thinly and cut out with a patchwork cutter then dried over the edge of a box for a couple of days to get the shape.
They are supposed to look like dark, milk and white chocolate.

It's drop dead gorgeous. I adore the genius placement and movement of the butterfly cascade. It totally looks like white, milk and dark chocolate. When you said gum paste, I'm thinking whaaat? That's chocolate isn't it?!

It's utterly classic but so so unique. Lovely artistry.

Beautiful beautiful work

very pretty!! I am dying to do a butterfly cake!

One critique, and I'm not even that sure about it, but the butterflies seems too far apart. I think I would like it to be a little tighter. But that is just a minor thing. Otherwise, it's great!!

wedding cakes scare me to but you have a natural gift, this cake is to die for, looks like your butterflys just left a garden and are in flight. dont stop keep doing what you do, cause you are good at it

Can't believe it's a first. You must have practiced a whole lot before this. Great job!
