This cake was designed to coordinate with the invitations of the shower. The butterflies were made of gum paste and lightly lustre dusted with pearl and then lightly dusted with gold and purple disco dust. It has a sugar coated look to them that doesn't show up well in the photos. Why the darker butterflies look blue instead of deep purple I don't know. Anyway, the cake is 3 tiers of vanilla with raspberry filling and buttercream icing.
