The Belated Party

We were going to go to WA for Esther's birthday (the actual one) but we ended up not being able to come at that time and the poor little thing's birthday passed without a birthday cake SO when we went up this week we had a belated party for the Esther-loo- with a long-anticipated LADYBUG CAKE. Ok, so the cake is pretty much the center of the party. Here are pictures of its production and being devoured!Esther getting a taste of frosting

Grandma frosting the cake- hurry up!
Ah, the finished product!
Eve helps Esther blow out the candles- yes, I know there are only two- but it's more of a design element than an indication of accumulate years!

Waiting so very patiently
Eve is ready
The cake in its natural element
I think Esther looks more delicious than the cake!

I LOVE the cake in it's natural element! It turned out pretty good, if I don't say so myself. I am still disturbed about the color, though!! I WILL conquer red frosting!!
