Butterfly

This butterfly I made for a “coming soon” cake ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  Its my attempt at a replica of evenus coronata ~ a butterfly native to Honduras.ย  Pic of actual butterfly is below. The colors are pretty accurate to in person though the base color is a touch more of a teal.ย  Butterfly is all edible except the anteanne which are fake flower stamens ๐Ÿ™‚ย  It is made with gumpaste and then hand painted with food colors then dusted with a pearl dust.ย  It looks kind of crooked in the pic but its really not in person ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Just how it comes out at the angle I took it at I think.ย  The body doesn’t look so funny in person ๐Ÿ™‚
