Fondant Butterflies

A friend and neighbor's daughter is having her 3rd birthday and I offered to make the cupcake toppers for them. Her girls are so cute and girly and her youngest is only 3 months older than Karysn. She was going to make chocolate cupcakes with pink frosting and at first I told her I could make flowers for them but I remembered I just got a new butterfly cutter and decided to make blue sparkly butterflies.

After I cut them out I colored the center with a food color marker and dry dusted them with African Violet petal dust and purple pixie disco dust. I them placed them inside folded cardboard with wax paper on top to dry . A few of them broke but with some creative placement on the frosting you can't really tell.
