So these didn't turn out like I thought they would, but were still fun to make! I saw this idea/recipe in Woman's Day magazine from Bakerella and put a few of my own twists on it, including:

*Not making cake and frosting from scratch lol! I do mix in a bit of clear butter and clear vanilla flavoring into jarred frosting though
*Changing the flavors up from lemon to dark chocolate cake (with funfetti frosting!)
*Using green sugar sprinkles instead of white for the idea of a grassy background
*Instead of using different colored candy melts, I only bought white and then colored them with food gel dye..it worked ok
*Instead of jelly beans, I used half a gummy worm for the butterfly's body
