Looks Like a Lady

Story Time. I mean, that's the only way to properly describe this beautiful piece of cupcake art above you. So. We are all aware that I made a semi-creepy bear cake awhile back. It was for my cousin's birthday, as an early celebration! She loved it. Well actually, she loved it so much that she took the nearest knife available and disected all of it's valuable parts. Violent, but entertaining. So, now it's her actual birthday, and I'm left in a rut. What do I make? Ideas roll around in my head. I know she likes running around the house for countless hours at a time, saying her dog's name over and over again until I want to cry, and digging around in the dirt to find some bug shaped like a coach-roach that has been squeezed and dried.

My options are endless, yet all involve grotesque things. So, I went for the least-vomit causing. Bugs. Not ugly bugs, cute bugs. Like ladybugs, butterflies, and fireflies. So I went to work.

Hehe, they are kissing. (The antennae are angel hair pasta, in case you were wondering)

Three in a row, like a red carpet gala for ladybugs. If there was one, my lady bugs would definitely be invited. I would make a big scene if they weren't.

And then, I stumbled upon a website. No, not THAT kind of website, get your mind out of the gutter. I came across a website that sells hot pink bakery boxes! Yes! It's like my life was complete at that very moment, until I looked at the minimums. I have to buy an insane amount of boxes. So, I ordered some samples, and hoped that they would look like crap so I wouldn't buy them. Nope. I love them. So, yes, I will be spending $700 on carboard ... very soon actually ;)

Last but not least, I needed to arrive with style, and my website, incase any future clients were lurking at the party.

Some pink tulle, and I'm pretty sure that this was the cutest Miss Cupcake package ever. I had someone at the party tell me it was the best cake they had ever eaten. MUAHAHA, correction. My life is NOW complete! By the way, the flavor was chocolate-covered strawberry. Strawberry sour cream cake with chocolate buttercream. Heaven!

This is the most accurately portrayed picture of Palmer that a photographer could ever capture. I'm sure at this point you are confused, but let me explain. You see, Palmer, (at the sight of this cake), jumped up and down so many times that my camera got very tired. (Even on action mode...and that's saying something.)

Oh and, the theme of the party was bugs. Genius. I love how that happened. Project=successful.

Sooo cute! I am thinking about doing Sophia's birthday in Lady Bugs and these are sooo cute! Wish you lived closer :D
