Using a butterfly cake pan for a birthday cake is a perfect way to show your little angel how special she really is. The cake is fairly easy to decorate (more on that below) so you can create something really special without having to worry about spending a lot of money on a cake from a fancy bakery. Butterfly cake pans are also great for baby showers and Easter. This is one of the few shaped cake pans that is going to get lots of different uses, so it’s smart to have on hand. There is also a mini butterfly cake pan that allows you to create personalized cakes.
You can decorate the butterfly cake however you want. The instructions that come with the Wilton Butterfly Cake Pan offers tons of ideas that will work even if you use a different pan. Those instructions are available here (PDF). The appearance of butterflies in nature is random, so your cake can look however you want it to!
Shopping for butterfly cake pans is easy as well. Amazon has lots to choose from and you can also knock out the rest of the party’s shopping, or you can find the best deals at eBay. I’ll show you both below so you can make the choice that’s best for you.
