I made this cake for a friend's daughter who turned one last week. Happy Birthday, Leah!! The ladybug is vanilla cake covered with fondant. I will DEFINITELY be making another ladybug cake sometime - probably for one of my own daughters! I still can't get over how stinkin' cute that little ladybug is!! The larger cake on the bottom is two 10" rounds of peanut butter cake with chocolate filling (YUM), covered with vanilla buttercream and fondant decorations. I love how the frosting "grass" turned out, although I had a serious hand cramp after all that piping!! The most rewarding part of making this cake was seeing my friend's reaction to it...she loved it so much that she didn't want to eat it!
