These very pretty butterflies are surprisingly easy to make. Form the wings by piping melted chocolate onto waxed paper and sprinkling sugar on top — when hardened, they peel right off!Download Fluttercups Template
*If the chocolate hardens while you're piping, squeeze it into the center of the bag, then microwave the chocolate in the bag for 10 seconds.
Cut 6-inch squares of waxed paper, one per butterfl y, and set them aside. For every five frosted cupcakes, microwave 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and 1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil in 10-second increments, stirring between heatings, until the chocolate has melted. Place the mixture in a ziplock bag and snip a small corner from the bag.
Pipe a pair of wings onto one of the waxed paper squares ( download our template). Quickly cover the wings with colored decorating sugar. Repeat the steps until you have wings for every cupcake.* Let the wings harden.
Gently peel each pair of wings from the paper and position them on a frosted cupcake (the wings will settle slightly). Form each butterfly's body with three jelly beans.
