Whatever Wednesday -- Sweet Fireflies

I made this cake for a friend's birthday.  All she wanted was "something cute with fireflies".  I made the cake from scratch, used homemade buttercream frosting and the little fireflies are made from store bought gum paste.  It was pretty easy.  Too bad I had a little person who kept poking it so the finish isn't totally smooth.

What do you think?
