Birthday season...

A friend's daughter kicks it off with a Purple Butterfly cake request...

take a 12 inch round pound cake...


fill with chocolate...cut in half...trim off all of the bits that aren't butterfly wings...


cover in a delightful shade of violet icing...


then fill in the rest with butterfly colors fit for a 3-year-old...

I think she liked it!

Of course, looking at this picture I can't help but remember these two girlies laying side by side on a blanket...gurgling and blowing bubbles...and here they are turning 3 and blowing out candles. And the two boys both turn 5...they already have their requests in!

with my lack of three dimensional insight I was wondering how you would make that cake... never would have thought it started off round!
it looks scrumptiously beautiful

I just made a post on my own May babies' birthdays, but your butterfly cake has definitely put their cupcakes to shame. Thanks for the step by step pics though. It ALMOST motivates me for next year! ;)

Nice work!!!
