Preheat oven to 180˚C (160˚C fan forced). Line a standard 12 hole muffin tin with large patty pans.

In a large bowl, combine the baking mix, eggs, butter & milk. Using an electric mixer, mix on low speed for 30 seconds or until combined. Increase speed to medium high & mix for a further 2 minutes.

Pour mixture into patty pans, taking care not to overfill. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Prepare the icing mix as a glaze, mixing with boiling water. Gently slice a circular piece from the top of each cake, cutting it in half to create wings. Sprinkle with pink decorating sugar.

Ice the tops of the cakes around where the circles have been removed. Fill each cupcake centre with some cream. Position wings into the cream to create wings. Trim 6 musk flavoured sticks lengthways in half to create the body. Cut 24 very thin strips out of remaining sticks to create antennae. Arrange a body piece down the centre of each cake.

Using the icing pen, gently make a heart shape on each side of the wing & a small dot for each eye.

Decorate the insides of the hearts with the pink pearls. Using icing, attach 2 antennae per butterfly & decorate under the wings with the butterflies.
