Ok, so I have to confess that this was not my creation, nor my design, but I was pretty impressed with this gorgeous butterfly cake that a good friend made for her daughter's first birthday:
You may recognize if from a classic children's cake book which has now been re-released, the Women's Weekly Kids' Birthday Cakes book I am sure it is available on Amazon as well. If you are not able to get hold of one, I tracked down some free online recipes from the book courtesy of the Australian Women's Weekly
I have seen a few other versions of the butterfly cake from this recipe, but this is the best one I have seen yet (I may be biased). It was the icing on the cake for a gorgeous pink party!
