"Butterflies, LadyBugs and Caterpillars" First Birthday Cake
This cake was my first attempt to make a cake for someone outside of my family. My closest friend's daughter had her first birthday. I was able to try my hand at gum paste letters in this cake, as well as making my own butterflies, caterpillars and ladybugs. I also "painted" the bugs with vodka and gel coloring, as recommended on most cake sites. This cake was a hit in my book. In just a short time I feel like I've come a long way.
