i have been looking through many of the gallery pictures and i have seen some really nice cakes with flowers and butterflies.
how do you make the butterflies? it looks as though a mold may have been used.

You can do piped chocolate and/or candy melt ones that are easy to do. They can be multi color or filled in with multiple colors. Depends on what look you are going for icon_smile.gif

Oh man, my brain isn't working right - I meant to say - they can be made one color lacy or multi-colored solid -ugh- Sorry!

One can also make very beautiful realistic ones with waferpaper, food writers, & petal dusts. I don't know if she still has the instructions on her site or not but try going to Earlene Moor's site. When I learned this way some 25 yrs ago we used chalk to color them.

I could not find the butterfly instructions on EM's web site, but did find this, which gives both printer and non-printer methods. These look fascinating, and will give them a try sometime. Hope this is helpful:

So sorry about the link not working icon_redface.gif I cannot get it to work directly either - UGH in a big way - So you can get to it by going to:

http://sugarcraft.com/

Search for Earlene Moore butterflies (search is located at the left)

Should be the 8th item listed entitled:

"Butterflies, edibe and so life like you have to touch them...."

There are other butterfly articles there too. Plus a whole lot of other info that I have not yet explored. Sorry again, hope this helps icon_smile.gif

OMG it did it again by converting the name to "block" -Aaaarrrgggghhh- icon_redface.gif

type the following into your browser, but without the spaces in it, and that will get you there:

http:// sugarcraft . com /

So sorry for the trouble icon_sad.gif

OMG I guess it isn't allowed to give the name of the site for some reason. It will still block the name no matter how I enter it. Sorry icon_sad.gif

Most of us know which site you are referring toicon_smile.gif It's sugar craft. I *think* that will work. Nope that won't work either.
When we work with 'sugar' the projects are called a 'craft'. Let's see if that helps/comes through icon_smile.gif O.K. put together the two words in quotes.
