Today Tina's neice Mya turned four, so I made her a pink and green ladybug cake.

I started off taking detailed pictures, but as it got later, I was running out of time and had to skip a few steps. I uploaded pictures of the ladybug being made and the birthday girl enjoying it to my project gallery.

  3. Amazingly cute! My little girl is sitting in my lap saying, "can you make that for my next birthday?" -hmm, maybe.
    What kind of fondant do you use? I always love the look of fondant, but the taste of it always makes me wish I'd used something else. Any tips for yummy fondant?

  4. allison - I use the Wilton's fondant and it works nicely but not much flavor. They recommend adding butter, vanilla or almond flavor to it, I just have never tried that. I just lather on the frosting underneath and we eat around the fondant!

  15. JTM - the frosting is just a regular butter cream... you could probably even just use store bought. The fondant is the Wiltons pre-made fondant. Easy!

  18. I thought this was so adorable,you done a very good job,for those of you asking about the flavor,you could always use marshmallow fondant,tastes 10x's better.

  20. Hi Jennifer, can you please let me know how you got you fondant to be that color (pink n green)? Did you bought it like that or added food coloring to a white fondant?

  21. I added food coloring to white fondant - not the liquid kind, but the paste kind.
