Presenting Ladybug Cupcakes
Ladybug cupcakes are a popular choice for parties celebrating spring. The bright color of the "ladies" will bring a smile to the faces of your guests.
Quick and Easy
You can make a simple ladybug cupcake by placing a store-bought sugar candy on top of swirled vanilla icing. It literally takes less than a minute.
If you're feeling more ambitious, make your ladybugs out of icing. Let them sit on waxed paper overnight to dry. Then, place them on the cupcakes. You can add flowers as well using the same method.
Textured GrassPiping on grass adds texture to your cupcakes. It also increases the fun factor. It's simple to do with a piping tip and a little bit of patience.
Even kids can make cupcakes that look like two-dimensional ladybugs. All you have to do is use a couple frosting tips to create the wings and the spots. Alternatively, use bite-size cookies.
Make your cupcake truly look like a ladybug by trimming it down to a flat, curved shape. You can frost it as you like. Some prefer realistic cakes, while others prefer them to be more cartoonish.
Serve your cupcakes with ladybug-shaped chocolates, or perhaps with butterfly cupcakes. You are sure to be the talk of the party.
