I have been asked to do a baby shower cake and the lady said to use the baby's blanket as an inspiration to decorate the cake. It's flowers and butterflies, see attached. I have some cutters that I can use for the flowers but what is the best way to recreate the butterflies? what is a technique I can use to get the butterflies to look like that with out a cutter, cricut or anything like that?

There are plenty of butterfly cutters you can purchase. Also wafer paper butterflies that you can draw/trace yourself or buy and cut out.

B'flies are easy to make using heart cookie cutters. Just put two together - points facing w/a line down the middle. Surely you have some cookie or aspic (small sizes) cutters?
