A co-worker of mine had been asking me for sometime to make his daughters a ladybug cupcake. I finally got around to it last week. I had some left over cake batter and was able to make 3...okay 4 but my husband and I split one.....cupcakes. I made two ladybug cupcakes. With the left over cupcake I made a "bad dog" cupcake, my co-worker ended up taking that home to his girls too. I did them rather quickly, but they were fun and I wanted to share.
The cupcakes are lemon with homemade butter cream icing:
The ladybugs are 50/50 fondant/gumpaste:
The "bad dog" cupcake (this one was done last minute, rather quickly):
