Each week I do a search of the Wedding category on Etsy to see what new items have been added. Sometimes I spend lots of time searching through the pages and other times I find something interesting really quickly. This week it was a matter of minutes. I was browsing Weddings & then clicked on the sub category of Cake Toppers when I came across the sugar wafer butterflies of Sugar Robot. What I love so much about this find is you don’t have to use these only for a wedding. These could be used for a child’s birthday party that is butterfly themed or even a bridal shower.
Here is what Lisa, the owner of Sugar Robot says in her etsy profile:
Behind every sugar robot there’s a sweet chick.
That would be me, Lisa. I live and create out of Ventura, Ca. I’m an aspiring Chemist who has a passion for baked goods. I took my first decorating class over 8 years ago and have been hooked ever since.
“Making the world fun…..one cupcake at a time”
I love this assortment of purples & pinks. So pretty.
I think the white could be really pretty on a cream colored cake, something very monochromatic or even another color, I’m not really loving it with the red, but I love the simplified shapes of these butterflies.
The butterflies are gorgeous and not terribly expensive. They are a lot of bang for the buck for sure!! Head on over to Sugar Robot and check out these lovely butterflies as well as the other sugar items she has in her shop (leaves, bugs, flowers)

Sweet Lydia’s is participating in Boston Bakes. From May 2nd to Mother’s Day May 8th 2011 over 275 Greater Boston restaurants and bakeries are participating in this sweet bake sale to raise funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. What makes Lydia’s paticipation even better? You can have her treats shipped directly to you!
Lydia has created a special Sugar Cookie S’more Basket just for Boston Bakes. Head on over to her site and make sure to order a basket, maybe send one to a friend or your mom for mother’s day! I can assure you the s’mores are delish (I’ve tested them many times.)
Head on over to her website to order up your special treats. All
I am trying to show off really great or unique products on etsy. There are so many great shops on etsy. This week I am featuring the seller Kate from Kate Said Yes. She creates lovely wedding accessories using silk flowers. I am typically not a fan of “fake” flowers, but these arrangements by Kate are lovely and do not look fake (it didn’t hurt that she’s a Boston gal either) Head on over and check out her creations.
This is the bouquet that caught my eye. The Orchids definitely don’t look fake, the colors are beautiful. I love the fuschia, white and the navy ribbon (Kate can customize the flower color & the ribbon colors). The cost of this bouquet is $100 without being a florist I think this price is great, plus your flowers aren’t going to die.
This yellow ranunculus bouquet is gorgeous too. I love ranunculus but they aren’t always in season (I wasn’t able to have them for my wedding for this reason) going with fakes means you don’t have to worry about when flowers are in season.
Definitely head on over to Kate’s shop and check out her work. She also does boutonnieres, corsages & hair pieces.
