Strawberry Cupcake Butterflies - easiest cupcake garnish in the world!!!!

August/September is Birthday season in my family with 7 in 7 weeks - ridiculous! 
For my sister's birthday I made a round of vanilla cupcakes and decided to decorate the cakes with strawberry butterflies ... I have to say this is the easiest and cutest way to decorate a cupcake using household ingredients!.

Slice your strawberries as you would to make a fan but actually cut through to make individual slices. Then take one of those strawberry slices, halve it and then lay it out on the cupcake as shown above. Now simply cut a small strip of strawberry for the center, place it between the two slices and voila! 


  1. I'm the Editorial Assistant for Fun Family Crafts and I wanted to let you know that we have featured your strawberry butterfly cupcake! You can see it here:

    If you have other kid-friendly crafts, we'd love it if you would submit them. If you would like to display a featured button on your site, you can grab one from the right side bar of your post above. Thanks for a fun idea!
