I saw a post on here last week. They used a butterfly pan and decorated it mosaic style with various colored candies. Cute and easy.

I simply cut a round cake in 1/2 and reverse the pieces so the straight cut edges are out side; rounded edges inside w/a twinkie between them.
Very similar to the above video but not w/the extra natch/cut in each 1/2.
It also can be done w/a sq cake but I don't like the look as well as w/a round.

I made this butterfly cake a few years back: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=353533

The top cake was from a butterfly shaped pan and I cut out fondant butterflies for the sides of the bottom cake

I did one for my daughter using the butterfly cake pan. Decorated with candies - chewy mini Sweetarts, licorice, etc. I used a Dove bar for the body. It's in my photos if you need some ideas! Good luck! icon_cool.gif
