"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.

The idea came from this cake at Cake Central.
The idea for the butterfly came from these videos.  Butterfly video 1, Butterfly video 2
