My friend Lynette called me and said that her little lady wanted a ladybug cake for her birthday but she couldn't find one at any of our local bakeries.

I think the end result was cute. The head was a little big and the fondant was far from perfect, but everyone seemed happy with it. The best thing of all - Carissa, the birthday girl loved it.
