Made using unflavoured gelatine and a purpose made mould from cake connection.
1 tablespoon unflavoured gelatine
2 tablespoons of water
Colour of your choice
Acetate sheet or ready made moulds from cake connection
Add gelatine to water and allow to aborb for 30 minutes
Heat either in a microwave or on the stove until liquid and add colour
Use a very soft brush to paint onto acetate/mould
Wait 8 hours (it will curl off the edges when dry this may take longer on humid days)
Use a pair of scissors to neaten the shape
Paint wings using piping gel and glitter of choice. Don't use water as it will dissolve the gelatine
Make a body out of fondant or royal icing and using some piping gel or sugar glue attach to wings
Place in a 'V' shaped former to prop up wings until dry
Add to cake using piping gel, royal icing

Yes these are going to be for a wedding cake I am making. It's not until March but as this was a new technique, I wanted to make sure that I could do it properly. There is going to be a swath of purple butterflies sweeping up the side of the white cake. As they're gelatin, they won't go off or stale. I have the stored in a large box with desiccant in it to keep them nice and dry.

If you would like to check out their website here is a link to cake connection. They have heaps of moulds and a video on how to use them.
