Happy Mother's Day!

Today we finally held the long awaited and several-times-delayed birthday party, just family, and combined it with a small Mother's Day celebration. I brought out lots of canned goods for this one! One quart of Strawberry Lemonade concentrate, which I mixed with water and ice because I forgot to buy seltzer water when I was at the store this morning. We also used up the last jar of 3-Bean salad, the last jar of the bread and butter pickles made with rice vinegar, and the last jar of peach-mint salsa. Plus I brought out some of the dill pickles we'd opened last night. I'm making lots of room in my pantry for this summer!
The cake was a hit, and I think the entire thing will be gone by the end of the day. The little ladybugs were essentially sugar bombs. Even though it was a LOT of work, I am very glad I made the fondant; it tastes so much better!
