I mentioned in another post that I'm making a cake for my granddaughter in a "woodland" setting and I want to have a little butterfly on her finger and several more around her because she loves butterflies. They will have to be pretty small though. I have looked for cutters but haven't seen what I need. Maybe something like the tiny flower plunger/cutter, but a butterfly.


Thanks for any help you can give!

I have the Patchwork cutter set for butterflies and there are some tiny ones in there...I'm at home now and can't measure but maybe there is info here: http://www.globalsugarart.com/butterflies-lady-birds-and-bees-cutter-set-by-patchwork-cutters-p-18562.html

Oh, and you can buy butterfly shaped sprinkles too, which would definitely be small enough. I think CK has some.

A paper punch works really well on thinly rolled Mexican Paste

Dayti, thanks so much for the info! I'll check out the patchwork cutters. ApplegumPam, that's a great idea about the paper punch. I could probably find that at Michael's. I appreciate it!
