Rated 4 out of 5 by Shrubbery314 from I had trouble getting the cake to come out of the pan neatly with the indentations on the wings. I managed to piece it back together and get it decorated. I didn't have indentation lines to go on for the placement of the different colors on the wings, but I traced the pattern from the pan onto paper that I placed on the cake and 'traced' with a toothpick. I used the star technique to decorate. It was a bit time consuming, but I used the triple star tip - much easier than tip 16. This cake was for my daughter's 3rd birthday. She LOVED it. She still talks about her 'flutterfly' cake. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyrtleAmelia from I bought this pan to make a for a baby shower cake where the mom to be requested a butterfly theme. I used the color scheme shown, but I "muted" the colors by using less coloring gel to get a "pastel" effect for the baby shower colors. I needed a large quantity of cake so I baked a two mix sheet cake and turn it out, iced it with a pastel green frosting, then positioned the butterfly on top of it and decorated it as directed. The only other change I made was to cover the sides of the butterfly with yellow stars instead of ice it smooth with white. The butterfly cake would be a good starter cake for someone who is learning, as it only has a couple of techiniques (stars and shell border) and doesn't take a lot of special tips or equipment. I'm anxious to try the other ideas shown for this pan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catnmouse from Fairly easy to do. I don't actually have the butterfly pan because I'm new to cake decorating. Instead, I used a standard round cake pan, cut the cake in half, cut out the wings, and used a twinkie to make the body. Then I used my Wilton cake decorating tools (the very basic set of tips and bags, plus the icing dye) to decorate. It was a fun project and my daughter loved it so much that I'm buying the pan to make it again this year (or a different variation)!

Rated 4 out of 5 by plain_jame from This cake is pretty easy to do. The grooves on the wings make it easy to outline if you are piping on stars. It looks good without too much detail if you just follow the basic pattern of the cake. The most tedious part is tinting multiple colors of frosting, then piping on stars. I've seen it done fondant, but the stars taste much better. This is cute and simple!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ah_sadaf from This one is a very easy and colorful cake to make. I changed the colors a bit and added some sprinkles too. I used fancy toothpicks to make the antennae since I did not have licorice . Have a look at my cake on my blog http://sadaf-culinaryadventures.blogspot.ca/2013/01/butterfly-cake.html

Rated 5 out of 5 by jeanna143 from I love this pan... it is very versital. I initially bought it for my daughers 2nd birthday which was a butterfly theme and I've since made some of the other designs and I can't wait to try more. You can use any colors you want and as long as you know how to make the star you are good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by IcingDreamer from This was the first cake I ever decorated and it was for my daughter's first birthday... I love the design because you can really make it your own by changing up the design on the wings and adding your own colours and accessories to really personalize it to the child's personality...
