My darling girl is going to turn 1 in March.
In preparation, I thought I'd attempt some butterfly cupcakes.
I started with carrot cake muffins with cream cheese icing.
Then I melted some dark chocolate wafers and white chocolate wafers in the microwave and put them into ziplock bags. And I snipped a corner so the chocolate would flow out.
I had drawn a template of a butterfly, which I lay under my parchment paper.
I outlined the butterfly wings in dark chocolate and filled them with white chocolate. Then I used a toothpick to make some swirls.
At the end, I sprinkled the wings with a few colourful sprinkles.
To prop the wings up, I used milk chocolate squares.
The step I skipped was making the butterfly's body out of dark chocolate icing or chocolate chips.
