Chocolate Butterflies

I recently received a copy of Hello, Cupcake! by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson and was super excited to try the butterfly cupcakes. Using the stencil in the book, I melted chocolate wafers, then piped it out into butterfly wing patterns on parchment paper.


Then, before the chocolate hardened (!!) I used a toothpick to swirl the two colors together to look like this…


After letting the chocolate cool and harden, I baked a batch of chocolate cupcakes using this recipe, iced them with chocolate frosting, using this recipe

I set the butterfly wings on top of the cupcakes using a small piece of chocolate under each wing to prop them up. I also piped some frosting between the wings for the butterfly’s body.
