This lady bug cake is made with an oval cake pan (crescent shape is cut out of one end to allow for the "head"), and a small round pan for the head. The "Baby Bugs" are made in the  Wilton egg shaped muffin tin. Colored candy melts are used for spots and thin slices of licorice strips are used for antenae. Frosting is bc.

for the retirement party of a vw repairman. I used the Wilton VW bug pan, but didn't want to use an outer buttercream icing. I cut the cake in half, filled it with a thin layer of buttercream, masked it in buttercream, froze it solid for 4 hours and then easily moulded it with rolled fondant instead. The decorations are fondant and gumpaste.

Lady Bugs in the Grass

My first ever cake, a trial version of a christening cake. I decided to match the scheme with the theme of my son's room - bugs. I think it looks a bit too much like platecine and will probably go for a more tradition christening cake for the real thing. It is chocolate mud with a layer of marzipan followed by a layer of sugarpaste with hand moulded sugarpaste figures.

Okay.  This is definitely my fav cake yet - it was sooo FUN to do!  I had a blast making the ladybugs - who would have thought bugs were so much fun?  

It's hard to see in the picture, but each ladybug had tracks from where she had been on the cake, looping around the flowers and through the grass.

Thanks for looking!

These were cupcakes make for daycare.  They were studying bugs and other critters and I thought these would be fun.  They loved them!  They even sent home pictures of the kids with frosting covered faces, just too cute!

I got this idea from Wilton's 2006 Yearbook.  I used half of the Sports Ball for the body and a mini ball for the head.  All of the details (face and legs) are candy.  The cake is one of the CMD ones- chocolate with mayo.  The icing is buttercream (green) and chocolate buttercream (black).

This was a last resort cake after my topsy-turvy cake flopped.  Frosted and edged with Wilton whipped icing and used fondant for the decorations. The antennae are just floral wire.

So, our lab tech turned 28 and I decided to make him a cake with  little fire fly bugs, but my background was a soft blue instead of a dark blue.  I didn't want to dye everyone's mouth in the lab, so I went for a soft blue.  I guess with the soft blue, many thought the bugs were bees.  Oh, well.  Cake is the White Russian from the cupcake CMD with kahlua buttercream filling and vanilla buttercream to decorate.

This was fun - I was so inspired by others on this site - kimistry, trisha1972 and charman all led me in the right direction.  Thank you all!  The cakes are strawberry with whipped raspberry filling.  The smash cake worked just as it should have - the photos will be adorable.

The cake was a vanilla flavored one that is great for decorating because it is quite solid.  The frosting was a vanilla buttercream.  For my daughter's second birthday.

I made this for a 9-year old girl.  I used the large cuddly bear pan for the frog; royal icing flowers and lady bugs.  The butterflies and small dragon flies are rice paper and the big one is made of fondant.  The frog's eyes and mouth are fondant also.

This is one of the more unusual requests I have had.  I was a little worried about the design in the beginning but I think it turned out cute.  It is a little play on words b/w a husband and wife..awww!

Okay I ordered these too.  For my son's bday with a bug theme.  We asked for a green base of frosting with caterpillar in yelloe, light green and orange.   These were for the kids party and I was just too overloaded to bake cupcakes too.  The kids and my son loved them. (Yes, my middle daughter and son's bdays are 5 days apart and we did a combined kids party this year. We took erevyone to the May Muesum, otherwise known at the bug museum!)

Here is my daugnter's bday cake.  I is cakelifted from CC.  It is a 2 layer 9' Strawberry cake with Choc fudge filling covered with MMF and decorated with creamcheese frosting and royal icing ladybugs that I bought from a local cake store.  This was the first time I have made and used MMF, it molded wonderfully and easily to the cake.  I am pleased with the turn out of this cake.  I had been planning it for several months now.  On to next week's birthday cake!

This is a 2 layer 10" cake with the Betty Crocker Dome cake on top. I used a small number zero cake pan for the face and poured melted chocolate over it to get it a smooth finish. The eyes, mouth and spots are all made out of chocolate. I also did cupcakes to match. I had a great time making this one.

This is the going away cake that I made- but a much better picture. I forgot that the person was going to Budapest to do some missionary work.
