I was asked to make a cake similiar to the one below, but with more design on the outside.. 1 main thing they asked for is butterflies, smiliar to the one's in the picture.. I know they are available to purchase but the customer would rather I make them for her cake.. I have never done anything so delicate before and wouldn't even know where to start.. If anyone can give me any pointers on how to make delicate looking butterflies like the one's in the link I am posting, I would greatly appreciate it.. I have no clue where to even start with something that delicate...
