Ladybug Birthday Cake

For my daughter's FIRST birthday I did a Ladybug Cake because we call her our little bug. It turned out so cute and I had a lot of fun trying to figure out how to accomplish my goal of a ladybug shape.

Instead of baking in a pan, I used a pyrex bowl for the body and a smaller bowl for the head. Then I did a little trimming of each to get just the shape I wanted. I then used a dark and light pink icing for the body colors. The funnest part was finding the candy to use for the body decor. I used junior mints for the spots and eyes and I used rope licorice for the little mouth and antennae.

I finished it off with some magical looking pink sugar "glitter". I also made matching flower cupcakes to go along side the ladybug. This was such a fun project and I was so happy how it turned out!
