These beautiful Autumn Butterfly Cupcakes were made using our Edible Butterfly Wafer Paper in Earth Hues and our NEW Woodgrain Baking Cups! We also used Clear Writing Gel and Pixie Dust to get the sparkle. Learn how to make Wafer Paper Butterflies that work on a variety of baked goods!
HOW TO MAKE WAFER PAPER BUTTERFLIES
2. Let your icing dry completely. (When using royal icing or buttercream)
3. Carefully cut out wafer paper butterflies using craft scissors. Be careful, wafer paper is fragile!
4. Spread a thin layer of edible clear writing gel or Karo Light Corn Syrup onto the printed side of the wafer paper butterfly and slightly fold in the center, so the wings are bent up. Place each butterfly in a section of the egg carton so wings will dry standing up.
6. Adhere butterflies by using a dab of edible clear gel on the underside of the body of the butterfly and attaching to the cookie, cake or cupcakes. Hold in place for a minute or so, then let completely dry.
