Ladybug Birthday Cake

Lilly wanted a lady bug birthday cake for her birthday.  Her favorite flavor is strawberry so the main cake is strawberry cake with strawberry frosting.  The lady bug cake is white cake.  The lady bug is covered in fondant and sprayed with Joy's new airbrush.

The daisies are made with gumpaste and the ladybugs are made with fondant.  The ladybugs and flower centers were also sprayed with the airbrush.

The tall grass is a mixture of fondant and gumpaste and the short grass is buttercream tinted the same color as the tall grass.

Lilly chose this design for her personal cake because she loved the cupcakes around the cake.  Joy made this cake and mini-cupcakes, and covered them in fondant. She added a few accents to match the larger cake.

Happy Birthday Lilly!!
