Butterfly Sheet

Butterfly Sheet on Cake Central

The idea for this cake, which I entered in a contest, is taken from a book about painting on wood. A 12x8x2 sheet is iced in buttercream, airbrushed lightly in several colors, a thick (high) border is piped, then a prepared full sheet of wafer paper is added. The border holds the wafer paper up off the top of the cake. The sheet of wafer paper is a bit smaller than the size of the cake so I had to use extra large borders to hold it in place. Before adding it to the cake you cut out designs - in this case flowers, willows, and the butterfly. Outline the cutout areas to highlight them. Color the b'fly and add it on top of it all. Would make a great, simple, generic design for a non-theme cake need.
