Have you ever wondered if there was an easy way to make cute butter shapes for special occasions? I saw such cute butter in the shape of a lamb around Easter time, but it was expensive!

The idea to make my own cute butter shapes came after I had already bought a silicone flower mold. I thought I would use it to make buttercream frosting flowers for a cake. (I have yet to do that….) Instead, I grabbed it when I decided to try making butter flowers.

To begin, melt some butter in the microwave. Use the “soften cream cheese” setting if you have it. Try not to melt the butter thoroughly, just enough so you can stir it and pour it. If you melt it too much, just refrigerate it a few minutes until it hardens back up.

Carefully pour the melted butter into the flower mold. Gently tap the whole tray on the table a few times, so that any trapped air bubbles escape. Then put it into the freezer for 5-10 minutes.

When you are about ready to serve your special meal, pop out the butter molds onto a pretty serving dish by pushing on the silicone tray.

Aren’t they so pretty?! And it hardly took any time at all.

It’s just a small touch, but your guests will feel extra special. I have done this now for two occasions– Thanksgiving and Easter.

If I was having a tea party that involved scones and butter, I would definitely be using these! See the flower butter on my mashed potatoes?!
