Flying Butterfly Cake

At face value, this cake might seem like any other one we have on the list. But when you open the box, you’ll be surprised with dozens of flying butterflies that almost look like they’re real.

The flying butterfly might be the highlight, but you also have to acknowledge the artistry of the cake theme itself. The maker uses green as the base color of the cake and pink butterflies, so it will look like you’re inside a garden.

Another design element to the cake is the use of gold glitter on the cake that the maker sprayed on. You can emulate this just by simply sprinkling the glitter onto the cake.

Just think, you can make this into a family activity and ask your kids to help you decorate the butterfly cake! The base is practically the same. You need to cut a round cake into two, then turn them inside out.

Butterfly Shaped Cake

Here’s another tutorial for a butterfly-shaped cake, but this one will be much more reserved and classical compared to the others. The maker created a realistic-looking cake using an ombre color of blue and purple.

Then she added the black lining as the finishing touch. You’ll need to print out a giant butterfly wing to create the cake. This will act as a guide when you’re shaping and carving the cake at the beginning.

You can use just one-half of the wing. Then you’ll have an identical set. Then cover the cake with some buttercream that you’ve made. Lastly, pipe on the black buttercream to create the delicate butterfly wings lining.

29

Pink Butterfly Shaped Cake

This is another wonderful rendition of the butterfly-shaped cake using only buttercream. The difference with this cake is that the maker used just one color for the theme – light pink.

Although, keep in mind that you actually need to create three different colored buttercreams for this cake, pink, lighter pink, and brown. The lighter pink will be used as the background color, then the pink itself will be used to create the delicate lining of the butterfly’s wings.

You can customize the theme using your favorite colors, such as purple, blue, or green. This is an easily adjustable, fun cake.

Fondant Butterfly Cake

This is another pink-shaped butterfly cake, but the difference is that this cake will be decorated with fondant.

Fondant is an ingredient that is more user-friendly than buttercream because you can shape and carve it just like you’re playing with playdoh. With buttercream, you need to get it right the first time, or you’ll be scraping off your design and starting from scratch.

The cake base is covered in buttercream, and you’ll decorate it with fondant to create detailed butterfly wings. This creates a three-dimensional effect you haven’t seen in the other cakes, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the result.

Buttercream Butterfly Cake

This is a cute, colorful, butterfly-shaped cake with blue wings and a green center. The cake is made with some basic vanilla sponge cakes shaped into butterfly wings.

The technique is still the same as previous ones – you’ll cut a circle in half, then shape the cake’s sides into butterfly wings. Cover the entire cake using some buttercream to create the base. The maker decided to use a sky blue color for the base.

Then start piping on the details with other colors on buttercream. The maker used pink, green, yellow, and white for the body. But it’s entirely up to you if you want to create other color themes.

Fresh Cream Butterfly Shaped cake

This next butterfly-shaped cake is a clever one, complete with its antennae. The color theme of this cake is kept simple – blue, white, and black. You will start making the cake by baking the base cake. You will then shape it using the half-circle technique.

Cut the circle in half, turn it inside out, then carve the edges to create the butterfly wings. Then you will cover the entire cake with a light blue color and then draw on the black detailing for its wings.

Don’t forget the dollop of whites on the edges of the wings. You will also draw on its antennae using the black buttercream on the base of the cake. The result is a very realistic-looking cake you’ll be proud to call your creation.
