These cupcakes are super easy to create and would make a great alternative to a birthday cake for any child's special day. Kids can decorate these cakes with very little direction or supervision so this could also make a party activity in lieu of a craft table or game.

Kids will love this easy activity

You can use any flavour cupcake and whichever colour frosting you have. Ensure that you only frost the cakes just prior to decorating so that it is still soft.


I used chocolate cupcakes for the base

Frost your cupcake of choice.

Add your frosting

Create the body of the butterfly by placing three upright M&M's in a row and then placing a final M&M at the top of the line and press flat into the frosting for the butterfly's head.

Create the body

Once the body is in place, you need to add on the wings. To do so, just place two chocolate freckles at the top and then two at the bottom.

Add some wings

Your butterfly cupcake is now ready for tasting.
