This one was relatively easy, white cake, covered with some-what random strips of black paste. I hadn't planned on butteflies at the start, but when I put the ribbon on it I realized the colour matched so well that it seemed silly to make flowers. The purchased these lovely butterflies from Rainbow Sugarcraft, and as they were available in other colours I got some pink ones this week. It seems just as well too, I have now been asked to make this cake for an 18th birthday - in pink!
This one didn't photograph too well, you can see the cake fine of course, but there was a message underneath it reading "Happy 50th". I really need to check my photos before the cake gets delivered or collected, eh?

Was also really pleased with how this little guy came out:
