Butterfly Cake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup buttermilk or plain yogurt

Butterfly Cake Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease and flour 2 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until light in color.
  4. Slowly add in the oil, vanilla extract, and buttermilk or yogurt, mixing until just combined.
  5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients until everything is just combined – don’t overmix!
  6. Divide the batter evenly into the prepared pans.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Once cooled, remove from pans and transfer to a platter or cake stand. Spread a layer of frosting over each cake and begin to create two identical wings for one butterfly cake by piping a hand-drawn design on either side with buttercream.
  9. Pipe a line of buttercream along the edge of each wing for definition before decorating with edible decorations such as sprinkles or candies.
  10. Place the two wings together, then repeat the same process for the other butterfly cake.
  11. To finish your butterfly cakes, pipe some decorative touches around the edges or on top using colorful buttercreams and more edible decorations if desired.

Serve immediately after completing these steps, or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

How do you cut a round cake into a butterfly cake?

The butterfly cake is a unique and eye-catching dessert that can be cut from a round, store-bought or homemade cake. To make the cake, you’ll need to use a butterfly-shaped cookie cutter or cake mold. Start by cutting out shapes with the cookie cutter or frosting the molded shape onto your cooled cake. If you are using a cookie cutter, add some of the extra pieces back into the empty spaces in the middle of your butterfly wings for an interesting look. Once you have your butterfly shapes ready, use clear piping gel to glue them together on top of the round cake. Then finish off with colorful sprinkles and other decorations for added effect.

What is the difference between a fairy cake and a cupcake?

Fairy cakes and cupcakes are small cakes, baked in individual portions and often served at parties or celebrations. Both are popular desserts that can be enjoyed on their own or decorated with frosting and other toppings. The main difference between a fairy cake and a cupcake is the ingredients used to make them. Fairy cakes typically contain less butter, sugar, and eggs than cupcakes, making them lighter in texture and milder in taste. Cupcakes tend to have more of these ingredients, resulting in a richer flavor and denser texture. Additionally, decorating styles differ – fairy cakes usually have simple decorations like sprinkles or icing sugar while cupcakes may be embellished with intricate frosting designs. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference.

How do you decorate a butterfly cake?

When decorating a butterfly cake, you can use either fairy cakes or cupcakes as the base. You can also make your own from scratch using cake mix or any recipe of your choice. Once the cakes are baked and cooled, start by cutting them in half so that each piece looks like two wings of a butterfly. Place one half-cake on each side of the plate or cake stand, and fill the middle with a layer of buttercream frosting. You can then use various decorations like sprinkles, edible glitter, fresh flowers, candy pearls or any other decoration of your choice to create a beautiful butterfly pattern on top. Finish it off by adding some extra details such as a fondant butterfly or other edible decorations
