Fast and Easy Butterfly Cupcake Decorating Ideas

 

Butterfly Cupcakes

 

Decorating Supplies Needed

  • Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • White Frosting
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Frosting tip #4 (round)

This is a very easy butterfly to make. You frost the cupcakes in your favorite color, this is chocolate. Cut the ends from your mini cookies to make them flat.

Note: You might not even need to do this but this one was cut on the ends to make sure the wings would look like wings and sit against each other easily.

Next, place them on the center of your cupcake, they should be flush with each other. To hold them up, a dollop of frosting was added to the underside of each wing for further support.

Use tip #4 with chocolate frosting to make the line in the center of the cookie (this is the body). Lastly, use your white frosting to make the antennas and any other designs desired.

Decorating Cupcakes with Easy Cookie Butterflies

Butterfly Garden Cupcakes

Decorating Supplies Needed

  • Vanilla Wafers
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • White Frosting
  • Pink Frosting
  • Green Frosting
  • Wilton frosting tip #21 (star) and #3 (round)

Here’s another easy cupcake decorating idea for butterflies. Pipe the green frosting onto cupcakes using tip #21. Insert the two cookies into the cupcake as shown.

Note: To give the cookies more support and to prevent them from flopping down you might want to pipe some frosting onto the underside to hold them in place.

Add half of a pretzel stick to the center of the cookies.

Use tip #3 and pipe the pink butterfly wings onto each side of your cookie. Then use the same tip to pipe on the white markings of the butterfly.

This can look even more elaborate if you use different colors. Be creative and have fun with it!

Cupcake Decorating Supplies Needed

  • Pink Frosting
  • White Frosting
  • Chocolate Mint Cookies
  • Frosting tip #4 and tip #233

Frost cupcakes with the pink frosting using tip #233 to make the pink grass. Next add the cookie to your cupcake. Pipe the white frosting to make the butterfly wings onto the cookie using tip #4.

Use tip #4 to make the pink designs on the wings.

Chocolate Butterfly Cupcake Ideas

Chocolate Butterfly Cupcake

Decorating Supplies Needed

  • White Frosting
  • Chocolate Melts in Pink and Purple
  • Frosting Tip #2D
  • Frosting Tip #3 (optional)
  • Butterfly Image (size to shape of a cupcake)
  • Parchment Paper

These took a bit of time to make but it’s do-able once you have everything laid out and organized. The chocolate needs to be very hot to flow better onto your image so make sure it’s as fluid as possible.

The chocolate used for this one was not as hot as could have been which is why it looks kind of rough. Find a favorite butterfly image online and size it to roughly the size of your cupcake. Print it out (make several) and (if you need to) draw over it with a dark marker to make sure you can see it well.

Place the parchment paper over your drawings and pipe your chocolate over the butterfly. To make this one, the chocolate was placed in a baggie and placed in the microwave in increments of 10-13 seconds. You can use frosting tip #3 to make the job much easier (recommended but not necessary).

This one was made without a frosting tip and small hole was punched in the bag. I had to go over the design with a small wooden stick to fix the butterfly as it got a little messy. The frosting tip will make it much easier so best use it.
Allow the chocolate to cool and then use a spatula to loosen them from the parchment paper. Place on your cupcake frosted in white with tip #2D.

  • White Frosting
  • Chocolate Melts in Pink and White
  • Frosting Tip #2D
  • Frosting Tip #3 (optional)
  • Butterfly Image (size to shape of a cupcake)

This was made the exact same way as above but in different colors. You can also add some sparkles if desired. A set of these would look super cute for a baby shower.
