they could also be white chocolate.

And to get them nice, a template might do the trick.

It looks like the wings are slightly curved- I would do them similarly to an RI tiara- make a template, put wax paper/parchment paper over and tape it to a large can. I'm no expert but that is how I would make them.

you must make the drawing, to put to him paper waxed raises. To draw all the lines and to let dry. When dry, make the center with royal icin and to put to him the wings (removing them with taken care of so that they are not broken)
I hope you understand this because I don"t know to much english
Sorry I use the traduction page.

is there a template on here, i worked with royal icing on the crown even with 3 coats parchment paper, and being very careful they still broke these are so delicate it's hard to see but i'm not sure they are toughing enough like the crown has to have alot of support pts. how would you make it in chocolate.

I have made these types of butterflies using tulle, you can't see it but the royal icing sticks to the tulle and pulls off of your wax paper template alot easier. This leaves you with a great looking butterfly. I hope this makes sense. Carol

I would try unbreakable gel. Its like RI but much stonger. I have not used it myself but I have seen beautiful butterflies made out of it with glitter added.
