One of the most popular yet, this yummy delight starts with moist double-chocolate cake filled with a sinfully rich chocolate mousse. Topped with peppermint-mocha buttercream, crushed peppermint candy canes, and tiny marshmallows, it’s like enjoying the richest cup of cocoa with a candy cane swizzle stick! They are always the first to go!
Leading up to my daughter’s 2nd birthday, we were enjoying a lovely Spring and I wanted butterflies and flowers! So I made them, along with purple spotted mushrooms, from pastel-colored fondant. They liberally covered her 2-tiered round cake (chocolate and lemon cake layers with a lemon curd filling, covered with a mint buttercream frosting).
Chocolate and lemon cupcakes were given as party gifts, along with decorated flowerpots with flower and butterfly cookie pops. Happy birthday, my little butterfly!
