Decorating with Butterflies

Butterflies are a pretty theme for birthdays, weddings, baby showers, after-school treats, and other spring and summer celebrations.

There are several ways to decorate cupcakes with butterflies.

If you don't have the tools or expertise to make your own decorations, there are plenty of pre-made butterfly decorations available for purchase.

Some are very elegant, and others are more playful.

Here are two very easy decorating ideas.

One uses butterfly party picks, and the other uses edible sugar butterfly decorations.

Edible Sugar Decorations


There are several edible decorations to choose from.

Once you have your butterfly decorations, decide on the best frosting color or colors to use.

We mixed white frosting with pastel pink frosting in an icing bag to a create very pretty swirl decoration for our little party cakes.

Butterfly Party Picks


We found some really pretty butterfly party picks that are perfect for decorating cupcakes.

They are re-useable, which is even better!

They come in a package of 12, and are pink, yellow, and blue bodies, with lavender, green, and pink wings.

Depending on the occasion, or party colors you have chosen, you can decorate the cupcakes in pink and white, blue and white, or yellow and white frosting.

Sprinkles in pink, lavender, or green, or a combination of these colors, can also be used to decorate the cupcakes.

Another fun decorating idea is using edible glitter to sprinkle on the frosting around the butterfly decorations.
