Welcome to CC! On which show did you see the butterflies? I ask because there are so many different ways to make them... there are simple butterfly shaped cutters, and there are more elaborate cutters that also have a mat that goes with them to imprint wing patterns upon them.

Global Sugar Art is a good place to research ideas:
