A few weeks ago I made all the sweets & treats for a ladybug party for a sweet girl turning 1 year old!
Her Mama wanted to go “all out” for her party, so I went ladybug cRaZy!
Next up… the smash cake.
It was baked in the sports ball pan… a tiny little half ball. I covered it in red buttercream and used black fondant for all the decorations. I kept this one simple since it was for the birthday girl to dig into and mom didn’t want it too fancy.
The ladybug cake pops might have been my most favorite thing to make! They were just so cute! The cake on the inside was vanilla – but it was red too! You can see my tutorial for making ladybug cake pops here.
Some of these were dipped in plain red candy melts with Wilton Sparkling Sugar added. For others, I used black candy melts to draw on the ladybug design and added a small fondant head. The black candy in the vase holding the cake pops were Black Sixlets….. isn’t that fun?
And then there were the cookies. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I’m no cookie decorator. At least not a good one. But these turned out pretty good!
Before I wrap this up… would you do me a quick favor? Would you hop over to Sweetopia and vote for my cake? If I get the most votes (ends June 28 at 9pm EST), I win an awesome Cake Ball Roller and I’d love to win!! I won!!! Thank you all so much! xoxo
