I love this cake. Even though I didn’t make it, taking a picture of it was a necessity. Tracy Kirk made this cake.
She used a glass bowl to bake the yellow cake in the oven for the round shape (you can get the same shape using a half ball cake pan). We took the cake decorating class together at the local technical college, and this was our last class, coming out with a finished fondant cake. Earlier in the class, we made decorations and flowers using royal icing. This was her end product. The entire cake is covered with fondant, the grass is buttercream icing, piped on using a grass tip. The flowers were pre-made out of royal icing, along with the butterfly wings. She used a tip number 8 to pipe the buttercream icing on top for the butterfly’s body, then inserted the wings at an angle into the body. She used flower stamens for the antennas.
