Preview: These Easy Butterfuly Cupcakes are a Great Way to Share the Truth of the Tranforming Power of the Lord Jesus Christ.]
Before the Lord miraculously saving my soul and the surrender of my heart and soul to the Lord, my life was a mess. Little did I know that the Lord would perform a transformation of my heart and life that I could never fathom.
Things changed. And not of my own strength and power. It was the Lord’s hand in transformation. It was a miraculous metamorphosis.
Metamorphisis isn’t a word that’s in the Bible, but the life cycle of a butterfly so aptly describes the transformation of a life by the grace of God. It’s hard to imagine how an ugly worm can be transformed into a beautiful butterfly. But we can experience spiritual renewal as we are transformed from sinner to Christian by the Lord’;s saving hand.
The life stages of a butterfly from egg, to larvae, to chrysalis and to a beautiful butterfly so aptly represent the transformation of a life in Christ.

If you want to add a different style of base frosting, check out the video below. The variations below will give you great variation!
Butterfly Cupcake Ideas- Assembly
Cut the Gummy worms in half lengthwise using the colors of the gummi worms that you like best. Add two brown jimmies to the cut end of the gummy worms for antennae. The cut end will be very sticky so it will be very easy to attach them.
Arrange your Gummy worms and Fruit Slices candies in pleasing complimentary colors. If you have a dark center body , choose a lighter color wing. If you have a lighter color butterfly body, choose darker wings.
In design, contrasting colors look much more pleasing together.
