Butterfly Cake + Cupcakes

A birthday in the family was coming up and that means time for cake. Family members are the best, because they serve as double duty by giving me (or anyone wanting to make cakes) an opportunity to make cakes and/or cupcakes and they also serve as the guinea pigs by testing them and giving feedback. Awesome, right? That's what family is for; helping and helping and helping... well, you get it!

I was told that the colors were to be purple, pink and green and the decor had butterflies included. With this in mind I came up with this simple, but so pretty cake. As clean as I could. Almond Sour Cream cake with Choco-Coco Filling and covered with Vanilla Buttercream. I also made Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting colored in purple.

Everything had butterflies, the cake and each one of the cupcakes. The butterflies were made out of fondant in the colors requested by the birthday girl. Plus I added small silly flowers and smaller butterflies around the bottom of the cake to make it more girly and whimsical. Isn't it pretty?
