This past spring my mom had her birthday and I asked her what kind of cake I could make for her. The only request she had was that it be all chocolate. She made it easy for me! I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to decorate it but it quickly came to me. My mom loves butterflies so found a brown paper bag to cut out butterflies from. Then I hot glued them to some wire that was strong enough to hold them. I also cut some branches off of a butterfly bush, one of her favorite plants, to add some greenery to it.
Lastly, I added some purple candles which happen to be one of her favorite colors. I was so excited to put together a cake that I felt reflected her in so many ways. It was simple and lovely and delicious. And I’m happy to report she loved it and thought it was very tasty.
