My step-daughter picked out this cake for her birthday. She loved the butterfly and wants me to make atleast one for her cake. I have made them out of royal but never rice paper. How would you go about doing this? How do you color it so perfectly?

TIA

Here is a great tutorial! I've been looking for an excuse to try these out myself! I assume this is what you mean( a picture would help!)

What pens work best for this. The wilton pens just seen so wide (i have thin tips) that they would be hard to get the thin lines.
