12 large wafer paper butterflies for cake decorating or cupcake decorating. Fully edible butterflies made from wafer paper and food coloring are a simple way to add color to a wedding cake or a birthday cake, and can be used on cookies that have icing or chocolate on them. They make a beautiful display when grouped together or placed individually on cupcakes in a display.
These are cut out and ready to be placed on the cake. They're flavorless and will stick to the surface of a fondant cake with a little corn syrup, or to a buttercream cake with some icing. To attach to cookies, use corn syrup to adhere them to cookies covered in royal icing or candy clay.
The butterflies in the photo are examples of ones that you'll receive. Each order can include different designs.
Butterflies range in size between 1" and 2 3/4".
Colors can't be matched exactly due to variations in computer monitors and the edible inks. I'll send a range of tones of the color ordered.
Place them on the cake right before serving and don't refrigerate to minimize curling due to humidity.
Wafer paper needs to be handled with dry hands since it's made from potato starch and will melt if it gets wet!
Butterflies come in a sealed plastic bag, and will keep for up to a year when stored airtight at room temperature.
