It's a ladybug picnic

I grew up watching Sesame Street and have fond memories of the Ladybug Picnic counting spot. Please click here to watch the video.

I was asked to make a birthday cake for a 4-year-old's birthday party following the Ladybug Picnic theme. This was so much fun!!!

My first LOLcake!

For those of you unfamiliar with the "lolcat" phenom, below is a nifty definition stolen from Wikipedia:

A lolcat (pronounced LOLL-kat, with the "lol" not being an initialism), is an image combining a photograph, most frequently of a cat, with a humorous and idiosyncratic caption in (often) broken English—a dialect which is known as "lolspeak" or "kitty pidgin" and which parodies the poor grammar typically attributed to Internet slang. The name "lolcat" is a compound word of the acronymic abbreviation "LOL" and the word "cat". (src)

For my friend Harris' birthday, I wanted to make him a "lolcat" cake, since I knew he would appreciate the joke. So, I found the perfect cake:

Don't they look scared?

And here's the birthday boy!
