Butterfly Fondant

One of my favorite babysitters had a birthday and I got to make her a cake! She loves butterflies and really liked my Pink Fondant cake. I combined the two ideas to make something just for her.

The top tier is four inches on a six inch tier; tiny by normal standards but the petite scale added to the effect. And a big THANK YOU to my parents who sent me those tiny butterfly cookie cutters for my birthday! They were perfect!

I love it!
It is beautiful and elegant!
I really like the touch of the twisted detail at the base of the cake.
And the fact that it was a dark chocolate cake....well, that just shows the superior tastes of your babysitter.
