I made this ladybug birthday cake for my granddaughter, Catie.

Ladybug Birthday Cake Instructions

  • I started by making two ten inch round French vanilla cakes.
  • Then, I bake one dozen cupcakes.
  • When the cakes were cool I frosted them with buttercream frosting.
  • Then, I covered the round cake with fondant.
  • I covered the cupcakes with colored icing then placed a cut out C on each of the cupcakes for my granddaughter’s name.
  • Next, I added a little extra decorations to make them pretty, as my granddaughter says.
  • then, I cut out rounds of fondant and placed them around the ten inch cake.
  • The larger lady bug on the ten inch cake is a cupcake covered in fondant and decorated with fondant cut outs.
  • I use candy molds to make the smaller lady bugs for the cake. I just put my fondant in the molds and let it sit for a minute and then I popped the little lady bugs out.
  • I used a food pen to draw on the cake.

This cake was one of my granddaughter’s favorite cakes. Her little friends loved it also.
