This order was my opportunity to make it up to my good friend Charlotte, after the whole ice cream cake disaster.
Her youngest daughter wanted a Butterfly cake for her birthday and girl has classy taste! She requested a Chocolate, Caramel and Coconut combination...YUM.
I found THIS picture online and used it as my inspiration!
I baked two 9x13 devils food cakes then used a template to carve 8 wing shapes, 2 pieces for each wing.
I filled each wing with milk chocolate ganache, a drizzle of caramel and shredded coconut.
I stacked all the pieces for 4 complete wings and covered them all in caramel swiss meringue buttercream, one of my favorites.
After picking out the orange sprinkles (because my cake had no orange on it) I lined the wings and sprinkled the cake.
Last, I piped the five sections of color onto the wings and added the swirled lollipop for the Butterfly body.
Voila! A Butterfly Cake!
