Magenta pink watercolor edible butterflies, 12 wafer paper butterflies for wedding cake toppers. Cake butterfly for cup.


About this Product

12 magenta pink and purple watercolor wafer paper butterflies for cake decorating or cupcake decorating. 3" to 1.75" wide.
Pink and purple watercolor edible butterflies with distinct markings to put on wedding cakes or a birthday cake, or to use on cookies that have icing or chocolate on them. They make a beautiful display when grouped together or placed individually on cupcakes in a display.

These are cut out and ready to be placed on the cake. They're flavorless and will stick to the surface of a cake with a little corn syrup. To attach to cookies, use corn syrup to adhere them to cookies covered in royal icing or candy clay.

You'll receive four 3" butterflies, two 2 1/4" butterflies, and six 1 3/4" butterflies. See the first photo for the size assortment.

***The colors in the photo are pretty close to the actual colors, but may be slightly off due to variations in computer monitors.

***Place them on the cake right before serving and don't refrigerate to minimize curling due to humidity.

***Wafer paper needs to be handled with dry hands since it's made from potato starch and will melt if it gets wet!

***Butterflies come in a sealed plastic bag, and will keep for six months when stored airtight at room temperature.

butterflies are a fast way to decorate cakes, and they make it easy to dress up a birthday or special occasion cake. My butterflies are precut and ready to use, and are made from premium AD grade wafer paper

Edible wafer paper is made from potato starch, vegetable oil, and water. It's flavorless and doesn't change the taste of your cake. You can also remove the butterflies before eating the cake if you don't want to eat them.

Some party themes and ideas that edible butterflies are good for include woodland weddings, garden parties, nature themed parties, first birthday smash cakes, anniversary cakes, graduations, retirement celebrations, parties for insect or bug collectors, bridal or engagement parties, baby showers, or rustic themed wedding cakes.

These are especially good for decorating a spring or summer wedding cake, but they can also be used on autumn themed cakes with forest decor. Butterflies make a year-round cake topper that are pretty for a lot of themes.

A Cake To Remember LLC


Meet the Maker

Let me help you decorate your next cake or make your next craft project easier and better! Edible wafer paper is an easy way to upgrade a grocery store cake to make it look like it's custom.

I've owned A Cake To Remember LLC, a custom wedding cake business in Richmond VA since 1999. In 2016 I stopped doing custom cakes and started concentrating on making gumpaste flowers and other cake decorating supplies, and now I'm focusing on all things wafer paper.

I also love helping other people learn to decorate cakes that will make their friends jealous...I've made THOUSANDS of cakes (seriously) and I'm glad to help people figure out what they need and how to use it to make their cake inspiration come to life.

By using premade decorations you can take a homemade or a plain cake and fancy it up to make a prettier cake than you'd be able to afford otherwise.

I also do videos for decorators on youtube at and sell tutorials that are designed for decorators who want to make their own flowers. I think that anyone can learn to work with gumpaste and make beautiful flowers to put on cakes, it's just a matter of practice!

Are Shipping Times Guaranteed?

No, those are out of my control. Please take post office shipping time estimates into account. The USPS doesn't guarantee delivery dates, and while I ship everything as quickly as I can I have no control over the date that a package will arrive. Once a package is marked as delivered by the post office I have very little control over the information I can get from them. If you have a problem with a delivery please check with your local post office since they'll have the most updated information. 

Do You Ship Internationally?

Because of constant changes in VAT, customs fees and other regulations that are more frequently being imposed in different countries, I'm not currently shipping internationally, other than to Canadian addresses. I don't make exceptions to this policy, sorry.

Can I Return Wafer Paper?

Wafer paper is considered to be an edible cake decoration, so I can't accept returns on those items.

Can I Get A Return Shipping Label?

The customer is responsible for return postage on all returns. I don't provide return shipping labels unless the item was defective to begin with. Please read the description of the item before purchasing to verify sizes and quantities.

How Much Will I Be Refunded?

For items that shipped free, any returns or exchanges will have the actual post office cost of shipping deducted from the refunded amount except in the case of items that were received damaged. To verify damage I need to get photos of the item and the packaging so that I can potentially file a claim with the post office. 

I Didn't Get My Package, Can I Get A Refund?

If you didn't get the package but the post office marked it as delivered, you need to contact the post office to see where the delivery was left. They have GPS on their scanners and are able to see exactly what address the package was delivered to. If they made a mistake they will have to help you get the package back. If the package was delivered to your address, they won't be able to help you. 

In cases where a package was delivered to your address but you can't find it, I am unable to refund. You should file a stolen mail report with the post office and your local police so that they can track cases and see if there are patterns of mail theft. Please contact me if this is your situation so that I know what's going on!

If the package wasn't delivered and the tracking doesn't show that it was received, please contact me and I'll arrange a solution.
