Lady bug cake, cupcakes and cookies

17 Sep

I love doing bug cakes/cupcakes… whatever.  I hate bugs in real life but gumpaste bugs with big eyes are adorable!!   So when I received a request to make a lady bug cake, cupcakes AND cookies I was very excited.
The cake was easy, I knew exactly what I wanted.  As fcr the cupcakes i wanted to make flowers that would match the birthday girl’s invitations.  But I want to add something a little extra so i decided to make some roses too.  So on my daughter’s first day of nursery school (while I was a bit distracted) I sat down to make some beautiful roses — a little extra for a woman who has gone out of her way to support my business over and over again.   I had troubles in the past with roses slipping off of wire so I decided to use toothpicks, but that meant that my drying rack wasn’t going to work.  So I needed to get creative.  Some butcher’s string and Ikea clips and I was set 🙂


Anyway, on to the real flowers and the many many little lady bugs.  Check these guys out my little swarm of lady bugs lol. Image
Here it is all put together.

This was one of the most enjoyable projects I have done.  I think it all worked out.  I really like doing a variety of matching desserts.

Ok, so I plan to take pictures in stages so I can show a bit of how I make the cakes but I forgot… So all I have is the final pictures for these two.

The Abby birthday cake was made for one of my little girl’s best friends.  It was a fun cake to make.  Especially Abby’s hair!!
The second cake was a small engagement cake that turned out to be a wedding cake.  The couple surprised their parents by getting married in the backyard at the party!!

So we got a chocolate deal

This is what has inspired this blog.  I was a marketing student, then an administrator, fundraiser and then a mom.  That was a huge step.  Next I started taking courses and decorating cakes.  Dear husband is sales guy and when he sees a potential market his answer is always “yes”.  So, when a customer told him they needed chocolate he told them I would do it.  Fortunately the internet is a wide open book with a lot of suggestions.  I have one chocolate course under my belt (signed up for a second) and I am learning fast as I go.  Follow along to see what cakes I make and what chocolate tricks I learn.
