I want to fly like a butterfly
Butterfly cupcakes- inspired by Hello, Cupcake! Endless possibilities of butterfly wings. Caution: chocolate sets fast. I made the butterfly wings and antennae with white and milk chocolate. The pink is colored white chocolate. Pipe the antennae on wax paper. Pipe the outline of the wing. The chocolate will set a little and then flood the inside of the wing with chocolate. Add colored chocolate and then pull a toothpick through the colored chocolate for the marbling effect. Add spinkles or pearls for more appeal. Let wings and antennae set in the freezer. To assemble the butterflies, place the wings on a frosted cupcake (you can prop the wings with toothpicks). Pipe the body with frosting and insert the antennae.
