Since starting this blog I’ve noticed that I do a lot of things incorporating butterflies – but oddly enough I don’t like butterflies. It’s not a just butterflies but generally animals/insects that fly. I don’t do things that flap in my face! As I child my parents took me on a day out to a butterfly farm where you actually got to walk through a butterfly enclosure! I’m not sure if it was meant as punishment really, as I hated it and freaked out inside nearly swatting one on my shoulder and quickly got escorted out.
All that said I butterflies are beautiful and typically girlie which must be why I use them on so many treats and crafts.
This week a work two of my work buddies celebrate their birthdays so I couldn’t resist but to make them cakes.
It was my first time doing any piping work and so you can see that I need some practice. The piping gun, edible butterflies and edible glitter were my mother’s day present and I have to say I’m most delighted with them and my first attempt – now I’m going to have to make more cakes as I hear practice makes perfect.
If you’ve got any tips on piping I’d be really keen to hear them? Is there a particular angle you should hold the gun at?
