Butterfly Garden Cake

Today’s gorgeous cake design highlights the beauty of nature.  And I think today is a good day to stop and focus on the beauty found in the world around us.  To appreciate a flower blossom and each of its delicate petals.  To marvel at the grace of a fluttering butterfly.  And to simply stop and smell the flowers.  Only in this case, we’re stopping to smell the cake.  Which I can only imagine smelled divine with all of its sweetness.  Created by Yeni Monroy and her team at Dream Day Cakes®, today’s cake is delightful slice of the outdoors which will warm your heart and put a smile on your face.  Let’s enjoy this dreamy Butterfly Garden Cake!

Fred from Dream Day Cakes shares the scoop on this design:

“Yeni created this spring design for a 50th birthday celebration here in Gainesville, Florida.  The party was to be celebrated in a garden, and the cake had to fit the theme.  This three tiered cake featured 100% edible decorations, including fondant monarch butterflies, sugar flowers, a 50 topper, and a white fence.”

Fred from Dream Day Cakes tells us about Yeni’s technique:

“Yeni hand painted the grass on the bottom tier.  All of the other decorations were hand formed using fondant.  The border effect was made using a great crimping tool.   The middle tier, double sized, showcased the butterflies as well as the edible elements of the garden.

Shades of green for the background and grass helped highlight the contrasting colors of the monarch butterflies.  Other butterflies also graced the cake, as well as sugar flowers, using complimentary pastel colors of yellow and pink.”

From the hand-painted grass to the dainty blooms, everything about this garden is lush and lovely.  No wonder it has attracted so many beautiful butterflies.  Seriously, those Monarchs are simply stunning!  This cake would shine at any garden party, spring shower or Mother’s Day celebration.

A very special thank you to Yeni and Fred at Dream Day Cakes® for sharing this lovely Butterfly Garden Cake with us today!  We are enchanted, as always!
