Instructions and Tips for Use
The best paste to use for these shapes is For best results we recommend using Sugar Florist Paste (SFP) or Mexican Modelling Paste (MMP) which you can buy ready made from Squires Kitchen or you can make it yourself This is firmer to work with and rolls out much more finely than ordinary sugarpaste so is less likely to stick in the cutters. A non-stick board such as a Cel Board makes it much easier to roll and lift your paste.
Simply cut out the wing shapes using the the cutter of your choice and leave to dry. Fix the wings into a body which can be modeled from paste or piped with buttercream or Royal Icing. You could use small stamen for the antenna but do not use this unless the butterfly will be removed before consumption as this could be a choking hazard. Support with a little foam or kitchen roll if necessary while they dry in place.
