I have searched like crazy trying to find something for you. There were no pictures on this website, and when I did a google search (typed in so many different things) this was the ONLY one I found!!!! Maybe if you make one, it will start a new trend icon_smile.gif Hopefully someone else will have some pictures!

Hmm I think I've seen them before, but maybe not if noone can find one. Anyhow I would just look up buterfly cupcakes and then use those ideas to make your bouquet, I wouldn't nescesarily put a butterfly on every single one, but mix in a few different flower colors and maybe even have a few flying about on florist wire, just my ideas. Here are some cool butterfly cuppies though...

It's probably too late to be of any help but I did one with dragonflies on it. you could just sub the butterflies for them.

I've done several of these and love them. Try the "Cupcake Doctor" book. She has instructions on how to construct the bouquet. I've made several variations of this... instead of iced cupcakes, I have a Nordic Ware rosebud pan. I generally will make strawberry cake so that the roses are pink (if you cover the outside of the pan with foil - shiny side out - your roses will remain very pink) and this recipe is in her book as well. Instead of using toothpicks to hold the flowers on the styrofoam ball, I use longer wood screwers as they hold better. Then attach the butterflies on with longer wires so that they look like they're flying... it just doesn't get better. Good luck! You'll love it! icon_biggrin.gif
