Step 1

1 DAY IN ADVANCE

Bake and cool lady bug cake. Cake is one layer, 2 in. high. Use knife to trim off feet, antennae, eyelashes and cheeks. Position cake on foil-wrapped board, cut to fit.

Step 2

Decorate cake. Prepare buttercream icing following recipe directions. Tint portions black, moss green/lemon yellow combination (for green) and lemon yellow.

Use spatula and black icing to ice smooth an area at back end of body, 5 in. wide x 4 in. deep. Use spatula to mark a curve for face on head side of cake, 3 1/2 in. from bottom edge. For wing division, mark a center line from base of head, 3 in. long, then angling out to left and right to form a triangle, 3 in. wide at bottom.

Use tip 3 and black icing to outline back of head and face. Use tip 5 and black icing to pipe oval eyes, 1 1/2 in. x 5/8 in., and 1 in. apart. Use tip 17 and green icing to cover face with stars. Use tip 17 and black icing to cover back of head with stars.

Use tip 17 and icing to pipe zigzag stripes in alternating rows of green and yellow, starting with green at wing division. Green rows are 5/8 in. wide, yellow rows are 1/2 in. wide.

Step 3

Make fondant arms and mandibles. For each arm, roll 1 oz. of black fondant in a log, 1/2 in. dia. x 5 1/2 in. long. Bend 2 in. from tip at a 90° angle. For each mandible, roll 1/4 oz. of black fondant in a log, 1/4 in. dia. x 2 in. long. Bend 3/4 in. from tip. Position against cake.
