Beautiful Butterflies!

Jessica Montoya created some beautiful cupcakes using butterfly wing molds.

I used white chocolate which I quickly melted in the microwave. I filled the mold with the melted chocolate and tapped the mold on a flat surface to remove any air bubbles and I cleaned away any excess chocolate with a small spatula. I placed the mold in the refrigerator for about two minutes to set. Once the chocolate was firm I removed the wings from the mold with great ease. I then dusted the wings with pink and green pearl dust to bring out the beautiful details. I attached the wings to the cupcakes using icing and then created the body of the butterflies with the same white icing which I then dusted with pink pearl dust.

  1. Everytime I see these butterflies from these molds I smile. These were some of the very first silicone molds that DTC offered (well not these actual ones, but the wings)- I found the original item at Big Lots - they were glow-in-the dark kiddo toys --
