The examples I've seen look like they are sitting on a fondant covered cake. I have to wonder if the gelatin would melt when it comes in contact with the buttercream.
I've never had that problem. However if it bothers you, place the flowers/butterflies on the cake just before serving and pull them off as you cut the cake -- no worries!
Oh and by the way, I did an experiment, when I did my teal butterfly cake I made a few extra butterflies and put them in the frig for a week -- they came out just the same as the day they went in. No problemo!
