Simple Handmade Entertaining on Handmade and Craft

Add a touch of whimsy to your next batch of cupcakes with edible butterflies!

Sometimes it’s the simple little details that pack the biggest punch for entertaining.  Having guests doesn’t mean you need to schedule a week of planning, just add a few pretty details to an easy menu to create a festive mood.


I whipped up these extra large cupcakes with a basic recipe and a touch of tangerine flavor.  Then I topped each one off with cream cheese frosting and a edible butterfly from Sugar Robot.  There’s really is no need to pay $3 a cupcake when you can make these in minutes!

To create extra large cupcakes I used this cupcake pan along with these giant cupcake liners…they can be a little hard to find in the store.  I love, love, love how they turned out and I have extra cupcake liners left to keep on hand for the next party.
