So, I'm in a pastry/culinary arts program in college, this is my first celebration cake! I'm pretty darn happy with it, aside from the obvious flaws with some of the piping, but hey, I did it all by hand. Smiley

The top tier is painted with royal icing, the butterflies are scrapbook stickers (I originally wanted to make them out of pastillage, but it didn't work out how I wanted). The Monarch is dark and white chocolate. It's covered with fondant.

The cake itself is layers of vanilla sponge and coconut pound cake, then filled with a coconut pastry cream.

Very impressive. That monarch especially. And the blueness of it. There should be more blue cakes.

that is stunning and the monarch butterfly is so beautiful.  You must have such a steady hand for all that fine stuff - or do you make lots in case one of them breaks?

Thanks everyone! Smiley

@elderflower: Nope, I only made one monarch. I drew a pattern to pipe over though. The rest of the butterflies were storebought.
