Our Butterfly Wedding Cake!

In a previous post, I wrote about the inspiration for our cake.  These two pictures pretty much sum it up.

Butterfly Cake

I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of our cake.  Mr. G’s friend Meg was arriving nice and early to drop it off.  I was upstairs when he called up to me to say that she was here.  I ran down stairs and there she was!

I was soooooooo excited to see it and it was totally awesome!!  Before we put all the butterflies on it, this is what it looked like.

My oldest sister helped me open all of the butterflies and figure out how I wanted them.  Then I went to work putting them on the cake.  It stressed me out a little having to poke the wires in to that perfectly smooth and amazing cake.  What if I messed it up?!?!

Finally, I finished putting all the butterflies on the cake.  I went a little crazy with the butterflies and ended up having way more than I needed.  My mom walked around and put a butterfly in each of the centerpieces.  It looked super cute.  This is the final product!!!!

We were both so happy with it.  I couldn’t possibly thank Meg enough for how amazing it was!!!  To make it even better, it was super tasty!  Vanilla cake with orange buttercream! 

The cake was exactly what I wanted!!!!  It was PERFECT!!!
