Butterfly Cake

My sweet baby girl turn 1 this weekend. I love to make cute cakes for my kids but I'm not very creative. I looked online to find ideas for a butterfly and I came up with this. It was really easy. I've tried to make complicated cakes before but they never turn out how I want them too. Plus they take way too long and personally, I don't think it's worth it. But there are ways to make cute cakes that are simple. I made this using White Almond Sour Cream Cake with Almond Buttercream Frosting. It was so good! My baby loved it!!!

Butterfly Cake

1 8 or 9" round cake
3 cupcakes
6 cups frosting, divided and colored any color
black icing

Freeze cake for easier frosting. Cut round cake in half down the center. Turn outward to make wings. Frost and decorate. I used pink frosting for the wings and purple frosting for the polka dots. Frost cupcakes and place in the middle of the wings. Decorate with m&m's for eyes and licorice for the antenna. Make a smile using black icing.
