Hi i was wondering if anyone knew how they got these silver butterflies on the cake? I wondered if a patchwork cutter was dipped in silver edible paint? Any ideas?

I would use a clear silicone stamp to imprint it onto the fondant then color with luster dust mixed with vodka using a small brush..

Also looks like maybe they used a stamp and then painted the impression?
