We have featured butterflies a number of times on this site. It is a popular wedding theme for wedding invitations, favours and table decoration but we had to look a little harder to find gorgeous butterfly themed wedding cakes. This seemed a little surprising because the staged tiers of a wedding cake lend themselves perfectly to have butterflies perched at each level for a pretty minimalistic style. Featured above our 12 of the best finds.
A. All in white this delicate butterfly cake is part of the contemporary collection from Celeb Cakes.
B. Also from Celeb Cakes this design features individual butterfly wedding cakes with a larger cake on the 5th tier.
C. I am a fan of Not on the High Street which features hundreds of small cottage industry suppliers and is a perfect site to find those individual finishing touches that you might struggle to find from larger stores. Not on the High Street detail who the manufacturer is so it is worth Googling them to find out more about them and to see whether the same product is available by buying direct. This 3 tier square butterfly cake is made by Cakes by Robin which have their own website at www.londoncake.co.uk. You will find their butterfly cake under their Modern Collection. The Not on the High Street listing for Cakes by Robin has a good close up of the sugar crafted butterflies.
D. This cake from Alison J Swayne is absolutely gorgeous. This vintage birdcage cake design is stunningly original and the designer has resisted the temptation to cover it is butterflies. The overall effect is natural and elegant; perfect for a summer garden wedding celebration.
E. This pink and blue design reminded me of the CCA Occasions butterflies wedding invitation design in pink and blue which was featured recently on the Wedding Stationery Gallery. It would coordinate rather well and can be found under the Wedding Cakes section from Cakeydora
F. I don’t think there is one wedding cake from Maisie Fantaisie that I do not like and with a bold claim that their cakes taste as good as they look this Blue Butterfly wedding cake must be truly scrumptious. The cake features handmade sugar bow and butterflies. Although based in London Maisie Fantaisie offer a nationwide delivery service.
G. Butterlies, feathers and diamantes. The ultimate in delicate finishes for this flouncy free spirited wedding cake from Special Day Cakes. Available as a 3 tier or 4 tier cake. A little off topic here but whilst browsing their site you must check out their unique helter skelter wedding cake. I have never seen anything like it!
H. Butterflies and Daisies have a whole range of butterfly cake toppers which enable you to decorate your own baked cake or a shop bought white iced cake (check out the plain iced white tiered wedding cake from M & S). This enables you to make your own creation at a fraction of the cost. Since there is an M&S in most major towns and cities you can order online and pick up at your local store. Adding the cake topper is an absolute breeze.
I. It is difficult to see in this image but the icing on this cake is the palest of blues. The butterflies on this cake are extremely delicate and the large butterflies flying from the top tier have large ruffled wings. Available in a variety colours this cake is available from the aptly named White Butterfly Company.
J. This original monochrome butterfly wedding cake is made from feathered rice paper to produce an unusual but suitable delicate backdrop for the black butterflies that seem to dance around the cake as if carried by the breeze. Available in three sizes from cake4fun.
