To say I was excited with how this cake turned out is an understatement. I was so nervous at the beginning when the mom of a recent entomology grad student said she was looking for a beetle cake. But with my own bug expert in the house explaining segmented legs and body parts of an insect on hand, I started in on the ground beetle.
With the main color being black, I knew I needed to amp up the shine and head texture with a super pearl luster dust and a giant clean blush brush. The youngest pixie helped me arrange a photo shoot outside for this guy before we headed out on our delivery.
