This was for my teeny-tiny cousin Madeline's baby shower. I wasn't super thrilled with it. It was a tiered cake that I tried to frost in smooth buttercream. Buttercream! Tastes so good, looks so bad! Thus you're only seeing the top of the cake. I rolled up bits of fondant to look like rosettes and made my old friends, the chocolate butterflies.
I made a cake for Maddy's adoption day, too, but I didn't get any pictures. It was a sheet cake frosted in much smoother buttercream (hey, I've got to improve sometime) with ladybugs marching across it. If you can't tell, Maddy's nickname is "bug." I can't wait to do a tarantula cake for her 15th birthday party (she'll be in her goth phase then, I'm predicting).
