Our youngest granddaughter Isabella turned 3 recently, and we celebrated at Chuck E Cheese. After that, we stopped back at our house for some cake.
Now usually I always buy a cake at the local grocery store. But this time I wanted to make a special cake. I had this 'vision' in my head of how I wanted it to turn out, but I didn't want to spend a lot of time and money on it either. So basically I just 'winged it' and here is how it turned out.
I know my mother is not fond of chocolate cake, so I made Spice cupcakes as well. The ladybug was white on the bottom and chocolate on the top. I used regular buttercream frosting for the body of the ladybug. The 'grass' was actually a little thicker frosting that I bought at the local cake decorating place. It's more for like making roses and things that need to hold there shape a little better than what normal frosting would. That is where I also got the lil ladybugs, eyes and flowers as well.
I won't be quitting my day job anytime soon...lol...but I really enjoyed making it for her. And her face when she seen it was priceless :)
Thanks for stopping!!
