Amazing butterflies. My cup cakes barely get the icing on them before they get eaten. I have some bought embellishments. My two daughters still like to decorate cookies and cakes at Christmas.

Such cute butterfly cupcakes, and decorating. All look delicious.
I just saw your snack for Friday night (biscotti) - one of my favourite things to bake, and always a great hit with friends. Mind you if any family member finds them first the friends will miss out for sure.
