Leveled, torted and ready to start icing...
Looking a little rough around the edges (this is usually the point my girls tell me I've missed a bumpy spot... oh so helpful!)
Cleaned up the buttercream bases.... looking pretty good.
Stacking the tiers... my least favorite part. Always makes me nervous!
Moving on... time for fondant!! How does a little red ghost fit into this cake?
Another tier to stack - hoping I get it centered JUST right.
And now the fun begins... hello little lady bug!! (Made a few attempts on the name, couldn't decide how I wanted it to look - love the end result though!)
This is the point where I start to wonder, will it turn out the way I've pictured it in my head?? I'm not anywhere close yet. So, out comes more fondant and frosting...
