The cake was covered in fondant. All the flowers were GP. The butterflies were wafer paper templates from Sugarcraft that you cut out, spead with piping gel, spinkled with edible glitter and let dry. Then finished with a royal icing body. I put mine on wires imbedded in the royal icing. The top flowers are fresh. They only problem was the wedding was outdoors, it was very humid, and the butterflies curled in the humidity.
