A Butterfly Baby Shower Cake

I had the pleasure of creating this butterfly cake for a sweet sweet friend! WOW, I have been so blessed with the most amazing, wonderful, talented, loving and gracious group of woman in my life...I praise God for that! My friend Mindy is expecting her second baby, and first little girl! She is so excited to have a girl with all the bows and frills to go along with it. So, I created this butterfly cake for her. It was carrot cake with white chocolate ganache on top, and brownie with white chocolate ganache on the bottom. Those were her two flavors of cake that she loves...so, that's what she got!! :) It was SO yummy...but incredibly rich!! We love you Mindy and are soo excited to meet Anya! - hence the "A" at the top of the cake.



A little learning thing for next time I do a cake with the creeping/cascading effect...make one row with the direction I want and then add a second or third row around it. I started putting butterflies on and once you get them on, you can't take them off because it ruins the fondant. But I had a hard time doing the cascading thing after I stuck a few on...so, lessons learned! :)

  4. The letter is made with modeling chocolate. I rolled it into a rope then formed it, let it dry/harden...then with a little more chocolate attached it to the top of the cake.
