When I posted the ‘sample’ butterfly a couple of weeks ago, I said I was going to use a cardboard cutout covered with foil. I decided against that and it’s a good thing I did because I could have never transported it that way. I asked my husband to cut one out of a thin piece of wood and I covered it with foil. That worked beautifully and was plenty sturdy for transport.

Total work time, including cleaning and cutting the fruit, was approximately an hour and 10 minutes … but well worth it.

I now have orders for more of these captivating fruit butterflies at future events I will be catering.
