Taste as good as they look!
I combined two projects I found on here and they turned out pretty cool!
Unfortunately I don't get to eat them, they are for my sister-in-law's bridal shower.
If you guys want to get the good instructions, I'd just read these two guys' how-to's and follow them, All I did was combine them.
I used Hershey candy bar and white chocolate chips instead of "chocolate melts"
The rainbow cupcake bit came from Phwarfcat and here is the link: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/rainbow_cupcakes
AND the time consuming butterflies came from JK<3 and here is the link for her: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/butterfly_cupcakes
I just used a regular white cake batter and followed the instructions on it to make a cake but instead put it into muffin/cupcake form
Once the batter is all made separate it into 5 parts and dye them with food coloring the different parts of the rainbow
Put it in the oven (following the cake instructions) and check on it to make sure its ok!
While this is going on you should start on the butterflies. Draw a shape of 2 butterfly wings that do not touch on a piece of paper with a black marker. (sorry I didn't take pics of this stuff)
Then cut out wax paper just a bit bigger then your butterfly drawing. I taped my drawing down to the counter and then taped the piece of wax paper that i was about to use down on the counter (over the drawing) as well.
Put your chocolate (either one, you'll have to do both) into a plastic ziplock baggy and then into a mug and put it into the microwave for 30 second incraments. MAKE SURE THE BAGGY IS NOT SHUT!!!! it will blow up! bad!
After the chocolates are melted (you can then ziplock the tops) reinforce the corners of the bags with tape.
After you've done that you're pretty much set. (dont forget about the oven cooking like i did though)
Cut the very very tip of one of the corners you just reinforced with tape off each bag.
Now you can start tracing your butterfly on the wax paper with the Hershey's or dark chocolate. and filling it in with the white chocolate. i used toothpicks to spread the white chocolate around to make sure there were no holes in it
Then i poured some sprinkles on it and the butterfly is done.
