Purple Butterfly Cake

This cake was so much fun to make. I love the more artsy cakes that come from a great idea. I made the rose on top out of red fondant. It's much more difficult to make flowers out of fondant than gum paste but I couldn't bear the thought of coloring gum paste red and the fondant came that way. The branch was made out of black fondant and the silver butterflies and dragonflies just made it look so magical and whimsical in a dark sort of way. The black and silver airbrushing on this cake just give it that extra depth and character that you just can't get any other way. LOVED this cake! We also made butterfly cookie favors for her to give to her guests at the end of the party!
