This video shows you how to transform a plain cake into a butterfly cake. You start with a round cake. Cut off the dome, cut the cake in half, then cut the cake like a peace sign. Arrange the pieces to form the butterfly. Apply a thin layer of icing to form a crumb coat. To set crumb coat, place cake in freezer for fifteen to thirty minutes. Now you apply a thick layer of icing, about a quarter inch thick over the entire surface of the cake. Use different colored icing to create a pattern of your chosing on the wings of the butterfly. Lastly, use a candy stick for the butterfly's body.
