I love making royal icing flowers. Once dried, easier to handle and last longer than gum-paste flowers, in my opinion. My kids and I also love to eat them.
I love making this set for Murni. White and green are the colours requested. Royal icing frosted vanilla butter cupcakes and top-off with piped royal icing flowers. For the mini tiered cake, I made it from vanilla butter cake, iced it with vanilla buttercream and covered it with white vanilla fondant.
Since it was quite a short notice when I received this order, so I made the couple of butterflies with white vanilla ready-to-roll fondant. I painted and drew the details on their bodies with edible colour paste and edible pens to make them look pretty.
So here are the pictures. Enjoy!
|I love taking pictures with an angle..|
|Looking green & bright!|

|The mini tiered cake...|
|Close-up on my lilies... oh I love them!|
|Mia butterfly... male or female? You pick!|
|The alter-ego... |
if the first one you pick it as a male...
than this must be a female and vice-versa... hehehe!
|Can you spot the difference between the two butterflies?|
|The butterflies courting each other... hehehe!|
