Ladybug Cake

My sister asked me to make a cake for her daughter's 1st birthday. I was more than happy to. I love making cakes, and figuring out new ways to decorate them. I am by no means a professional, but I thought this one turned out way cute.
I used fondant for all the decorating. I have a great recipe for fondant that I need to post. It's very easy to make and doesn't taste half bad either.
I am also going to add a page of "Cake Ideas". Basically just birthday cakes and special occasion cakes that I have made. Cake decorating is relatively easy.... just time consuming!

I love decorating cakes too. You'll definitely have to post the fondant recipe. Most fondant doesn't taste that good. Love the ladybug.
