Baby Shower Butterflies

This baby shower cake was to be based on the bedding that was picked out (see pic below).  The butterflies are gumpaste and the rest is done in fondant.

Honduras Cake

This cake was a S&S creation for my sister’s (the other “S” in S&S) church for an auction to raise money for a missions trip to Honduras.  The butterfly (as noted in my previous post) is an evenus coronata butterfly from Honduras and the flower on this cake is a hibiscus-like flower found there as well.

We kept this clean and simple ~ gumpaste flower and perched butterfly, fondant covered cake and ribbon around the base with a simple bow on front.  I love the how the colors came out together!  And I hope that the cake gets a high bid at the auction to raise them a lot of money.

This butterfly I made for a “coming soon” cake 😉  Its my attempt at a replica of evenus coronata ~ a butterfly native to Honduras.  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.  Butterfly is all edible except the anteanne which are fake flower stamens 🙂  It is made with gumpaste and then hand painted with food colors then dusted with a pearl dust.  It looks kind of crooked in the pic but its really not in person 🙂  Just how it comes out at the angle I took it at I think.  The body doesn’t look so funny in person 🙂

More butterflies – these will be for Cassie’s bday cake this week 🙂 Pink/purple/blue…made the dark chocolate darker this time and got it colder before adding the color so it didn’t smudge the dark outlines like last time.
