In the March/April 2009 issue of Mailbox News on Page 42 there is a flowerbasket cake with gumpaste and fondant flowers and leaves and a royal icing butterfly which it says was made using the technique which was described in the April/May 2008 American Cake Decorating magazine. I was not a subscriber to the magazine back then. Can anyone describe the technique to me?

It also mentions that the daisy technique was found in the October/November 2007 American Cake Decorating magazine. I'm interested in learning more about that technique as well.

Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

If you go to Google write, royal icing butterfly pattern in the search box. Near the top of the results page you'll see, Patterns for making icing butterflies.... Click on that, which will lead you to a page that gives all the directions
