I was researching various edible sugar baking decorations and these looked pretty interesting. They’re produced by Sugar Robot and can be purchased on Amazon. I opted for just one butterfly per cupcake. The photos on Amazon show two butterflies per cupcake, but if you make two dozen cupcakes, it might be a bit overwhelming with that many butterflies. They come in a little stack, you fold them and place them on your cupcakes. You could probably use these on anything from cupcakes to cakes to petit fours.
So if you want to “wow” your guests, this is a great way to do it. And it’s EASY. I didn’t eat one of these butterflies, but they are edible. I should note the backs of the butterflies are not as colorful as the fronts. But for this photo angle I wanted the wings up higher. Most people will probably want to flip the butterfly so its wings are only slightly folded so that only the colorful side is showing on the top. But I will show you how both ways of arranging the butterflies look over the next couple days or weeks.
I think I found those colorful baking cups at K-mart of all places.
