Decorating tips by Nadine:

Hard icing is the best to work with.

Ingredients for decorating:

  • Lots of different pastel coloured balls
  • Liquorice strips - not ropes
  • Any sparkly edible decorations
  • Tweezer and earbuds

The only way to get the balls to stick to the icing is to wet the spot with an earbud, if you wet the ball all the colour comes off. There is also edible fairy dust available, you use that to dust the entire butterfly after you have finished the decorating. I also put coloured vermicelli in the batter when I bake the cake. The kids love it, as it adds a bit of fun.
