Make This Lady Bug CakeEasy instructions for making a lady bug cake:
Bake a sheet cake the size you will need. Using the picture as a guide and an icing filled bag with round tip size #5, draw a lady bug on the cake. Cut out the outline of the lady bug.
Using a star tip size #18, fill in the spots and the
head with dark chocolate icing.
Then fill in the body with red icing using the same tip. Finally, draw a line down the middle of the body with dark chocolate icing and round tip #5.
Or...if you like this lady bug cake better:
Bake the cake using an oven proof bowl. The head is a cupcake with the edge cut to fit the body. Next cut the tips of the wings.
