These cupcakes are ridiculously simple to make and look adorable. With the pastel colors, they would be great for a child’s birthday party or especially cute for a baby shower. You can adjust how you make these to the amount of time that you have. If you have spare time, bake the cupcakes and make icing and edible clay from scratch. If you’re in a rush, buy ready made cupcakes and pastel fondant from the crafts store.
For the butterflies in the photo I used ready-made fondant. Just press a small amount into the mold for each butterfly and add the small dots and antennae in a contrasting color. If the fondant starts to dry, add a bit of moisture to the ‘dot’ and press onto the wing.
I also folded them slightly so their wings weren’t flat. I leaned them on the edge of the plate until the fondant firmed up, then arranged them on the icing.
