Butterfly Cake

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!
