Dragonmoon Tea Company
This is a chocolate petit four covered in a chocolate ganache-type icing. The cake was dark and fudgey. The cake was small (about 1 1/2 inches in diameter), but very rich and satisfying. The butterfly is made out of rice paper, I believe, and soy-based inks were used, so it was completely edible. The gold dot is a dragee, also edible (unless you live in California, then they are illegal to sell/purchase/possess, as are the silver ones... weird).
I gave the petit four with the blue butterfly to our clerical aide for Administrative Assistants' Day. I split this one with one of our part-time case aides. My butterfly wing had chocolate underneath it, so I didn't notice if the wing tasted like paper or not. It melted rather quickly in my mouth. The price was about $4 each, which is a bit pricey, but for a special occasion, it is well worth the cost.
