Bake the cake for the head of the bug in a pyrex bowl. Cut the body of the bug out in an oval shape. Use the pieces that you cut away to round off the top of the body by placing them on top of your oval. Use icing to hold the pieces together.

Using star tip, size #16 or #18, ice the head in dark chocolate icing. Use white circles for the eyes as shown in the above picture with chocolate in the center. Use red icing for the smile. All of the icing is done using star tip, size #16 or #18.

Ice the bottom part of the body in chocolate icing. Put the yellow stripes and circles in yellow icing outlined in chocolate icing. Fill in the top part of the body with blue icing.

The legs are black puff pipe cleaners bent in the center with a puff on each end. One end is stuck in the cake and the other end on the board with an icing foot piped on top of it.

When you are making cakes for children, the brighter the colors the better. This cake is full of bright colors and looks a lot harder than it actually is to make. It is an awesome cake for any child that love's bugs or spiders and is a great way to make that theme cute!
