This decorating idea is lovely for spring and summer. All the kids love butterflies and it’s so simple to make butterfly decorated cupcakes using only the top off the muffin . I’ll show you with pictures step by step.
- You need a few or more muffins and your favorite frosting recipe. You can prepare them in advance with a day or two. This time I used this Carrot cupcakes recipe with cheese frosting.
- Some candies sprinkles of your choice.
- 100 grams of melted chocolate. A microwave will do the job.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Careful not to burn it.
Using a sharp knife, cut a piece from top of each cake. Cut tops in half.
Deep each half into the melted white chocolate and immediately cover with sprinkles.
We use melted chocolate also to ‘glue’ the butterfly wings. Don’t touch them until the chocolate cooled and is firm. Keep the kids away at this point (I didn’t and it was a mess! 🙂 ).
I went the extra mile with some melted chocolate left. If you like you can draw some antennas too. If not, they still look amazing, right?
So we had a lot of fun in less than half an hour.

Baking is so much fun!
