Snackshot of the Day: Butterfly Cupcake Topper

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

These cupcakes topped with edible butterflies are the perfect spring dessert.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a cupcake topped with edible butterflies. As winter is starting to fade away, we're getting ready for spring in every way possible. Now is the time you'll start bringing out the bright colors and hosting parties. Not only are these butterflies a cute, springy addition to a plain cupcake, but they're also edible. This design is simple and elegant and will be sure to impress all your guests.
