The butterfly gets its name from the texture of its wing: soft and buttery. Which suits them well as decorations atop a cupcake's buttercream finish. These chocolate engagement cupcakes were prepared for an engagement party and the symbolism of the butterfly's metamorphosis couldn't be more fitting. 

Dark chocolate cupcakes were topped with tinted chocolate buttercream and light grey butterflies and white flowers made from fondant. Of the five dozen in total, approximately one dozen were reserved and topped with white buttercream with a coral butterfly. 

A very big congratulations to the happy couple.
