This cake is based on a previous cake I had done for my daughter's 1st b-day.  It is from the 2004 Wilton Book.  The butterflies are made from fondant.  All else is buttercream.

This was for my neighbors birthday. I didnt have time to do rice paper butterflies so I did Tuile butterflies. Much quicker and tastier.

This is my Finale Cake for the Wilton Course II class. The butterflies are colorflow. The flowers are royal icing. The basketweave and icing is buttercream. I thought it was pretty.. 

This cake developed cracks in the frosting and a huge earthquake-like crack down the center by the time I got home. See that picture in the Cake Disasters forum in thread called "Earthquake Cake...".

Ok this is a cake for one of my very best friends.  She loves butterflies and her fav color is pink.  She also likes green.  I had planned on using more pink in the cake but i am very happy with how this turned out.

This was a gift cake for two little girls - sisters whose birthdays were a few days apart.  This design was a copy of their party plates and napkins, and they just love butterflies.  It's iced in bc and the butterfly and flowers are fondant.  The butterfly body is cake.  I couldn't decide whether to refridgerate it, but it was SO hot that I had to with the bc - so that's why there's some condensation.  But of course, the kids loved it anyway.

This cake was for my Mom's office.  I got to choose any theme for the decorations, and thought this would be fun.

This is my first picture posting. I am so intimidated by the talent here that I hesitate to post mine. This is a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing covered in fondant.  Royal icing flowers.  I loosely followed the directions for making butterflies found on this site.  Then sprinkled real peridot gems on the wings.  The cake was for my sister's birthday.

This was my first wedding cake. I used the article from here on how to make edible butterflies but I used Vellum paper instead.

I made this for my friend's daughters 4th birthday.  After frosting the entire cake, I made my own stencil for the pony's body and used Wilton's blue spray to color it.  Then I outlined all the details in black and filled everything in with a variety of tips and finished it off with a couple of cute butterflies and cake sprinkles.

I made this last minute for my niece's 8th birthday. The icing for both the cake and flowers is Martha Stewart's Meringue Buttercream for Flowers (it's a Swiss-style, I think). The hearts and butterflies are white chocolate painted with pink luster dust. I was in such a hurry that in the end I was just making blobs of icing for flowers between the roses! Who care that they don't look like any particular flower as long as the overall effect is good! :)

This was a last resort cake after my topsy-turvy cake flopped.  Frosted and edged with Wilton whipped icing and used fondant for the decorations. The antennae are just floral wire.

A HUGE thank you to Jelena for the how-to on  making the wings on my "Fairy babies"!!  I couldn't have thought that one up on my own!  First time trying the butterflies fromt the how-to on the site-really simple!! Turned out great-my client is going to flip.  I am really happy w/how this turned out..usually I find something not to like, but I am thrilled w/this one.  Bottom tier (in green) is a dummy-the pink layers are cake :)

This cake was for my daughter's sixth birthday, which had a "bug" theme. The butterflies match the paper plates and napkins. I made them out of candy melts.

This cake was inspired by yet another one of Collette's cakes.  Also, my first time using luster dust, boy I love that stuff.

This is the cake I made for my neighbor's daughter's first birthday.  The theme came from the party decorations.  I have to say that I stressed way too much over getting the icing colors to match exactly like the decorations.

This was the cake I did for my daughter Rory's first birthday. She absolutely LOVED it, and she got a smash cake of her own. I had absolutely no plan whatsoever, so I just picked some cute colors, mixed them up, sat down and kinda worked from there. That's normally the best way for me to do it!
It's Lemon cake with bc icing, all decorations are hand drawn.
Thanks for looking!!

This was a rough draft - I wanted to see if I could do royal icing butterflies - so I didn't spend a lot of time on the icing (buttercream).

These were the cookies that wouldn't fit into the bouquet (previously uploaded).  I wrapped them up in tissue paper (wax paper also to prevent grease spotting) like a regular bouquet and will deliver them with the cookie bouquet.

I made this cake for a new customer.  It's a 4" white chocolate mud with fondant,  all the details are fondant and I pressed my small butterfly cutter into the cake before it got too hard and then coloured the butterflies with pink shimmer powder.  In Australia, we don't often do cake tastings, so I thought it would be nice to give a new customer a small cake to take home when they placed an order.  Just trying something new to see how it works:)

This was a cake patterned after the chosen party decorations.  The interesting challenge was to do a wave of two colors around the side of the cake to match the plates and napkins.  The butterflies and flowers are all made from hand piped colored chocolate.
