A week or so ago my wife and I asked our daughter what kind of birthday cake she wanted and she responded with "I want a butterfly cake." I then asked what colors of butterflies she wanted and she said she wanted blue butterflies. I was so stoked to do her cake this year! First of all because she is my daughter and I love her so much! Secondly because I have not done a cake in far too long. This is a problem I need to fix. So if you or someone you know lives in New York City and need a custom designed cake please send them my way. Anyway, back to the cake, it was a hit! We invited over a few of my daughters friends and they had a butterfly party and of course loved the cake!
This was my first time using Gum Paste. I cut the butterflies out of gum paste and then hand painted the design on with food coloring.
It is a luscious melt in your mouth moist white cake with lime buttercream icing.
