2-Tier Chocolate Cake

This is a chocolate genoise cake with raspberry chocolate mousse... but the chocolate decoration was the true reason why we made this 2-tier cake.  The butterflies on the bottom was painted with cocoa butter and oil soluble colors on acetate strip.  We then poured tempered white chocolate on the acetate, on top of the painted butterflies and wrapped the chocolate strip around the cake. For the top tier, we simply piped white tempered chocolate on acetate and wrapped it around the cake.  It was a fun mellow day.
