First Birthday Butterfly

Let me start by saying that next weekend our friends are having their twins’, Ethan and Chloe, first birthday party.  I am making their cakes and decided it would be cute to do two cupcake towers with their smash cakes on top of each and coordinating cupcakes.  Why do I always make things harder than they really have to be?  Oh well, I love the design I’ve come up with and I’m stickin’ to it! 

I started on some of the fondant/gumpaste elements today for obviuos reasons…1) Drying time, 2) screw up and try again time, 3) don’t like it and try again time.  For Miss Chloe I’ve decided her smash cake is going to be a small half round cake with fondant/gumpaste flower petals surrounding it so it looks like one big flower with a small butterfly.  The butterfly’s body is a “1”.  All is assembled with the butterfly now it just has to dry.  I am hoping that it will actually stay together because it is adorable!!!

I am going to try to start on Ethan’s later this week.  I also have to make my dad’s birthday cake for this weekend.  It’s his surprise 50th!  So I am going to be a busy little bee the next couple of weeks.
