Designer Butterfly Cake ~ 9" Round

A while back I decided to make a Butterfly cake and I now have the photo's to share with you. In April I had a neighbors Birthday and In May I had to whip another cake for two for my husband Birthday. The first cake was a little more colorful for my neighbor, made with brilliant food colors of yellow, pink and blue food coloring. But, this was a more macho approach for the Man in the house. Of, course the first cake, was design in a photo format. For the design purpose to show how to cut the section to design the cake. Which you can check out the design pattern to create your own HERE. As you can see here there is not much to this design, but it has a beautiful impact to the eye. Creativity don't have to be difficult. Just pleasing to the human comfort to be pleased. So this Birthday cake was delicious as well as easy as 1,2,3,4,5 which is about how many cuts it takes to create this design. I also added the antenna which I made out of foil for my husband, You can also use your imagination to create one out of many other materials and tulle, colored plastic wrap, or even using candies or licorices. I myself, will now use the foil and even perhaps frost the foil with color as I did for the first cake I produced for my neighbor. Except don't try to eat it. Ha Ha. Just use a square sheet of foil and cut half way down the middle of the sheet of 15 by 15 size piece of aluminum foil. Then it is necessary to roll the to side towards the slit.and then curl the antenna as you can see by the photo. This makes the best antenna I have found so far. NOW, Lets frost the cake. If you let the cake air dry the ends will become a little dryer and easier to frost. But, if left to long the cake will dry and be hard and not pleasing to the palette. because of the small portion of cake that is being made. You have to have a watchful eye not to dry the cake to long.
My husband cake was only frosted on the top and sprinkled with a few jimmies. Just to rush the cake process through. Because, I really had a busy day and trying to keep up with a full time job and my love to tell you guys all about it. Takes up a big portion of my day. The truth is, I really like to spend more time reading, writing, and studying then my is Job. And of course my Handsome husband Of mine does most of the cooking. But, when it comes to sweets look out. I'm in the kitchen whipping up smoothies, cake, cookies or even the occasional fruit bowl. And as you can see it don't take long to devour this cake. Enjoy

Sending and being sent items in the mails is just awesome and a fun way to create and send your items. With many crafted creative swap selections to choose from. You can join in the swapping fun. I have the pleasure to share with you My first swap. I had joined my first group, just recently and if you like to read more... here is the other featured article on Swap-bot. Plus, having the pleasure of creating my own swap robot ladies to also share in my adventure of these article, I will be enjoying to write. I wanted something to identify my swapping lady friends. So, i hope you will also enjoy my clip art creations.

Here we go, I Got Mail. 

 Like always, with everything you join you got to read the directions. I got this letter in the mail and it looked like a birthday card. Well, I know it's a little early for my birthday. Opened the card, it's my swap partner. Oop's I didn't know how to play. After going back into the swap-bot site. Ohhh there it is. In the upper right corner click here to find your partner name. I got it now. and out went my card. So let's review the items that got sent and received.

Gifted treasure from my Swap Partner

Also, part of this gifted package of her Artistic creation. Is a favorite classic Author saying.......

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. by Louisa may Alcott

Then, recently did a Seven Day simplycaptivatingphotochallenge~ color  In which I used the Butterflies and coloring page's to post to the challenge. Here's the card from those butterflies that i made for the challenge and how I colored and displayed them.
I first had to do some coloring of each butterfly....... with gel pens, and hopefully you can see the high sheen from the metallic gel pen set i used. I also have a few glitter gel pens that always come in useful, to give some luster to there wings.
Now, I also choose to outline the photos after using the gel pens . Included is a photo outlined first. But, after coloring one before and after the gel pen was applied. I opt to outline after coloring in my butterfly coloring page photos.
As you can see, I printed out my coloring pages, six for each panel I created, and two for the  larger photo. about 1/4 inch larger and layer two back to back. Curling the back layer away from me and curling the top photo towards me. to give more to the impression of flutter wings. Then glued the two layers together and then applied the Butterfly over the ribbon. then one of the panel butterflies, I also double layered the butterfly. With only curling the top layer on the six panel to give depth.

I hope you enjoyed the Swap-bot treasure that was sent in the mail. and received in the mail.

Don't forget to add a sentiment .....My love for Butterflies was the insert which I will make sure next time not to forget to save the saying before sending........

Hope, you enjoyed come visit again.
