Happy Spring to you, and Happy Birthday to Kiersten my princess, and to Colton my oldest. Colton turns 15 today…I can’t believe how the time has flown!! You are a gift my son and I love you dearly.
Kiersten was 7 yesterday. After three boys I never knew what I was missing until God gave me a daughter. I am so thankful for this blessings.
I saw a cake on Pinterest a while ago and knew I wanted to make it for Kiersten’s birthday. My mom is the cake decorator…not me. I was convinced to try however, and this is how it turned out…
This is how I made it…First I cut out butterflies using this cutter kit and fondant.
It was my first experience with fondant so I didn’t know what to expect. It was really just like cutting out cookie dough.
I did go a bit overboard on the number of butterflies I cut out…I wasn’t sure how many the cake would take. I laid them along these foam plates so their wings would bend making them look like they were flying off the cake.
I used a regular white cake mix and then divided it into fourths…coloring the four different colors for the cake.
I frosted in between each layer and then frosted the whole cake.
This cake was really easy and made the perfect birthday cake for my princess. It would also make a nice Spring treat or Easter dessert.
