Hi Sandra,

I like the butterfly set from Patchwork cutters as they are pretty, also Jem do some nice lacey butterflies, hope this helps

Although they aren’t silicone moulds as you requested, the Patchwork butterfly and bees set is gorgeous and makes some of the nicest butterflies around.  The largest butterfly from the set looks stunning as a single decoration on a cupcake.  You do need to use Mexican paste with them rather than modelling paste as you would with a silicone mould.

The PME butterfly plunger cutter set also makes great looking butterflies very quickly and simply – I just use florist paste and then decorate the spine either with royal icing or dragees:

If you did specifically want silicone moulds then the larger one from this set produces nice results – I wasn’t so keen on the other two designs but that is probably personal preference:

First Impression moulds for detail are excellant. They’re a bit more expensive but worth the investment. I get mine from the Cake Decorating Company in Nottingham but you can get them online and also from Neit moulds (you have the link from Jayess).

Oh, some very nice moulds on that site Jayess – I haven’t come across them before so thank you for the link.
