I had a request to make a cake for a 3-year-old. The inspiration came from the e-vite (I was a guest at the party, as well)... so, I had fondant ladybugs, green and teal fondant stripes, and a quilted red fondant cake board. The cake was chocolate filled with dark chocolate ganache (this little girl loved her chocolate). In addition, she liked pink and purple flowers... they got translated into chocolate form, along with mini fondant ladybugs, to top pink- or purple-coloured Swiss meringue buttercream icing over chocolate cupcakes (they were used as thank you favours). This cake was nice and simple and cute!
The white trail marks were individually cut fondant pieces!
