Step 1

At least 3 days in advance: Make 2 large royal icing butterflies on wires. Tape wing patterns to cake board and cover with waxed paper. For easy release, spray waxed paper with non-stick vegetable pan spray and wipe off excess with soft tissue. For butterfly, cover with tip 4 outlines. Make extras to allow for breakage. Let dry 24 hours. Carefully remove from waxed paper. Assemble butterflies on waxed paper-covered board. For butterfly body, pipe a tip 5 line, 1 1/2 in. long; insert wire and overpipe another tip 5 line. Insert wings and support with cotton balls to maintain angle. Overpipe body with same tip for head and body. Let dry completely.

Step 2

Make fondant flowers. Tint 1 oz. portions of fondant blue, violet, orange and pink. Roll out 1/16 in. thick. Cut flowers specified in directions using cutters from set. Place on thick foam and cup centers using rounded end of modeling stick dipped in cornstarch. Roll small balls (1/8 to 1/4 in. diameter) for centers. Attach using damp brush. Let dry. Use assorted colors to make 10-12 each: apple blossoms, daisies and pansies using cutters from set.

Step 3

Prepare base board. Using largest pan as a guide, cut board 1 in. larger than pan on all sides. Cover with chocolate fondant.

Step 4

Bake and cool 2-layer cakes. Ice smooth with chocolate buttercream and prepare for Stacked Construction.

Step 5

Use pattern to mark side scrolls: 1 on top tier, 1 1/2 on middle tier, 2 on bottom tier. Use light brown buttercream icing to cover main stems with tip 7 outlines. Use green to add tip 4 side stems.

Step 6

Pipe tip 6 bead bottom borders. Attach flowers with icing dots.

Step 7

At reception: Fill 2 Flower Spikes with chocolate fondant; insert butterflies, trimming wires as needed to vary heights. Insert spikes into cake.

This 5-petal springtime flower, most commonly seen in white or soft pink, is virtually the same petal shape as the wild rose, but uses a smaller tip creating a petite flower. The dot stamen are typically positioned like the holes in a 5-hole button. Dry them on flower formers for a more natural look.
