Modern Buttercream »
InstructionsI didn't dry my butterflies flat as the course taught. I dried these so that they would curl off and away from the cake to make them look as though they were landing in the cake. In the future u would use more contrasting colors.

What was your inspiration?
Butterflies were the inspiration
What are you most proud of?
I like the shape of this cake it's mocking the theme. I really think that the mass of gumpaste butterflies make it unique and stand out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It would be best to dry these butterflies on a more curved structure. I cut paper towel cardboard in half and covered it with wax paper. I do think that it would have been more appealing if the butterflies were more contrasting colors rather than only two shades different.
