Flowers and Ladybugs Cake
I loved the idea of making cartoon-like 3D flowers coming off this simple cake. Each flower was made from two or three single cutouts. I ended up using a flower fondant cutter and a star.
I loved the look of the star when dried into a 3D shape. This cake made me laugh from start to finish.
I used liqueur glasses to form the flowers into their 3D shape and this cake was for a little girl. Using liqueur glasses for a little girl just seemed wrong yet funny.
Also for some reason this cake reminds me of little shop of horrors, which is also funny because, again this cake is for a little girl.
However I love the colours in this cake and the ladybugs add just the right amount of whimsy.
