Abbie's Butterflies

Hi Sweet Readers!
Happy Friday!
Here is a cake I made for a little girl's 2nd Birthday. She wanted a butterfly theme.
I made the butterflies, flowers and leaves out of fondant and painted them with luster dust. I used edible pearls to decorate the flowers and the letters.

It's a little hard to see, but I spelled her name, Abbie, in the flowers on the cake plate. Her mom made some really cute cupcakes and cookies for the kiddos at the party. The cake was for the adults. :)

The cake is a wonderful lemon cake that I made from the book "Cakelove" by Warren Brown. It was somewhat time consuming, but well worth it! I filled the cake with orange mousse and vanilla buttercream and topped it with IMBC. I also drenched the bottom of the cake in chocolate ganache.

I received the cutest thank you from Abbie and her mom, along with an adorable photo of her with the cake. It made my day!

Have a great weekend!
