Lady Bug Cake and Cupcakes



I made this cute Ladybug Cake and cupcakes for a 1 year old party. I used the six inch wilton ball pan for the body of the little lady, covered in two coats of ganache and then covered with the red fondant. Once that was smoothed and trimmed i added the red fondant and adhered it with a pastry brush and a bit of water. Next were the cute eyes in white and black fondant circle cut outs. i piped a bit of green frosting with the grass tip all around the cake. The legs and antennas I formed the previous night with an extruder and let dry completely. These were pushed into the cake after making small holes with the back of a small paintbrush. I really enjoyed making this cake! The cupcakes were another story...haha!
