Yesterday was my youngest granddaughter's second birthday. Her mom didn't have any preference as to her cake, so I decided to do the honey bee and ladybug cake which are featured in the Wilton Celebrate With Fondant book.
Sylvia was fascinated!!
These cakes were surprisingly simple to make. To get the round body shape, use the sports ball pan and the mini-sports ball pan for the heads. They are covered with fondant and all the spots, stripes, eyes, eye lashes, etc. are fondant.
To finish out the centerpiece, I purchased a piece of light green fabric to set the cake plates on, then shredded green tissue paper in our paper shredded for the 'grass' around the bugs.
I'll definitely be doing these cakes again!!
