How to Make Gum Paste Lace Butterfly



Just got myself a box full of butterfly cutters of different sizes and shapes.


This is the finished product where I dust them with lustre dust using a big blusher sized brush.



Equipments to prepare: rolling pin, flower former, folded paper, dusting pouch, butterfly cutter, tips and white flower stamens.


Tips used are 1, 2, 3, 104, 101, 81 and 97.


Firstly, roll out the gumpaste.


Cut out the butterfly using the cutter.


Dust cornflour or icing sugar on both sides to ensure it is not sticky.


Use various tips to cut out designs.


Fold the butterfly and place them on the folded paper on a flower former.



Mold the body and stick in the feelers. Run blade across the body to make horizontal lines. If you prefer white butterflies, then this is it!
Another variation is the summer toned  butterflies below.

  7. Nurainie,
    Thank you soooo much for this tutorial, I love it. I have an order for a girl babyshower cupcakes this weekend and I have been looking for something unique and I found it. I love how I can use all my own cake things to make this without getting the expensive cutouts with the pre-design on it. This opens up a world of creativity to design them. Thank you and so cant wait to check out the rest of your blog.
