Ladybug Birthday Cake

Sometimes we learn the backstory. Backstories let us know about the little things— little things with big meaning. This ladybug themed birthday cake helped celebrate a 10th birthday here in Gainesville, Florida. Ladybugs for a birthday cake? To understand you need to know the backstory. =)

This cake featured (you guessed it) ladybugs from top to bottom. With adorable (and edible) motion paths, fun swirls, and fondant ladybugs, this Red Velvet cake almost needed a picnic basket for a cake stand. =)

When we say all over the cake, we mean it.

We baked this cake to be eaten. The number, the ladybugs the swirls– everything. When our Gainesville bakery turns out a cake, we want it to be enjoyed.

The key to a birthday cake? It’s all about the person celebrating the birthday.

Did all of the ladybugs make it to the cake? You’d have to visit the bakery to know for sure. =)
