Gelatin Butterfly On White Modeling Chocolate Rose

This is the topper for a special cupcake I am making for a little girl's 4th birthday. The cupcake will be uploaded once it is done in a few days =) The rose is made from white modeling chocolate, brushed in luster dust (bad photo for capturing it) and the butterfly is made from gelatin. I didn't have the butterfly veining/texture sheets everyone has, so I downloaded a butterfly picture, cut it out, and used it as a cutting template for mine. It worked awesome, minus having the cute veins. I used a paintbrush with simple food colors, liquid and gel, to brush on the details. I had no problem with the colors melting the dried gelatin at all.

I made/ dried my gelatin butterflies on a flexible cutting board, it popped right off just like a texture sheet =)
