Bright Flight Cake

Heart and Mini Ball cakes construct this bright butterfly in flight. Ready-To-Use Rolled Fondant makes the decorating so easy!


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

Several days in advance, cut two 6 in. pieces of licorice for antennae. Roll into curls; let dry.

Step 2

Bake and cool two 1-layer heart cakes and 4 mini ball cakes. Tint two boxes of fondant orange and 1/2 box yellow. Prepare cakes by lightly icing with buttercream and cover with fondant. Smooth with Easy-Glide Smoother.

Step 3

Tint a 1 in. diameter ball of fondant lime green (combine yellow and green to achieve shade). For spots on wings, cut dots from fondant with large opening of tip 2A; attach with brush dipped in water.

Step 4

Tint remaining fondant rose; roll out into four 5/8 in. diameter ropes, 10 inches long. Position ropes on cake with brush dipped in water.

Step 5

Attach chocolate candy eyes with buttercream icing. Cut and attach pieces of shoestring licorice for mouth and eyelashes with buttercream. Insert antennae.
