What was your inspiration?
This one was so much fun! There was a woman opening up her new daycare called The Little Ladybugs and she had this tiny little 1 1/2" ladybug figurine on her desk for the longest time and she really loved it...SO, when she asked if I could do something for the grand opening I thought YES! I re-created her favorite little ladybug into cake with tons of cupcakes to go with , and they had little ladybugs! I didn't have her wings on in the photo but there were there, and although you can see them all, each cupcake had the red reeces / m&m's had "spotted" with my edible marker to look like ladybugs. She loved it!
What are you most proud of?
The entire cake - I was pretty happy that I made a cake sitting up like that measuring right at 13" high and she held together on the trip!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Plan time to take your time! Things tend to fall apart if you toss it together.
