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!

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.

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.

I did these for a baby shower with a Lady Bug theme.  This was my second attempt.  The first time, I didn't let the red completely dry before putting the black dots on and the black bled into the red...ugh!

customer just said she wanted butterflies and bright cheery colors, so this is what I came up with.  It is two, twolayer 6 inch chocolate cakes filled with white chocolate BC covered in vanilla BC then covered in 1/2 white chocolate candy clay 1/2 fondant mixture.    The sunshine is a sugar mold base with white chocolate rays connected with royal icing.  Clouds are royal icing as well.  This was a FUN cake.

I'm sorry I deleted the other photo of this but I realized after looking at the picture cake needed tweaking! :-)  Added the leaves to the border.  Doesn't seem *quite* so plain now.  fondant with gumtex bow and booties.  Bow painted with Americolor color mixed with vodka and ladybugs added to booties using Americolor food writer pens.  This was done to coordinate with the nursery bedding.

The mother wanted a picture of a Lady Bug, thus I came up with the rubber baby with a fondant blanket draped over her to look like a Lady Bug.
