Ok totally been a while since my last post! im a slacker. but here we go. my daughter lilly. (we call her lilly bug) turned 4 on sat. and she wanted a cake in the shape of a lady bug. so i made her one. i used a 10inch round for the bottom and a dome cake pan for the body of the bug. the "grass" is coconut with green food color. and the head is shaped from marshmallow fondant that i added tons of powder sugar to hold shape. the eyes i used jiggley eyes from the craft store and the antenna i used a pipe cleaner... let me know what you thank...

thanks for looking  Wink

no. not the whole thing. just the ladybug (body and head) i needed the round cake @ the bottom to be sticky so the "grass" would stick. so i just used a store bought frosting for that part. but everything else is the marshmallow fondant.
