You Bug Me Mini Cakes is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this picture to create a ladybug birthday cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday party. For the body I baked a cake in a stainless steel bowl so it would be big enough for everyone to eat. Then I used a king size cupcake to make the head. I used black licorice sticks for the antennae. And then I baked little individual ladybug cakes for each of the kids. They were made using the king size cupcakes. It was very beautiful and my daughter was super excited!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If I had kept it with just using buttercream, it would have been somewhat easy - but I took it a step farther and covered the entire ladybug cake with rolled fondant. So it took it made it a little bit harder! Otherwise, it was pretty simple with baking, assembly, and decorating. It was nice having a photo to compare to so I could figure out how to do a certain step. And it was well received at the birthday party it was made for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my little Ladybug (daughter) when she turned 6 months and it was a big hit.I actually used the model from the Wilton magazine which is pretty much the same as this one on the website. The only step that I believe needs more details is how to connect the ladybugs head to the body. Maybe a photo tutorial would make it clear for everybody as it was a little challenging for me. Other than that...very cute cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a smash cake for a friend's 1st birthday. I also used BC. It seems a waste to cover this cake in mmf, when it turns out so well in BC. I used rkt for its head. I painted on it's eyes and mouth. I turned out really cute!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this idea to make a larger cake. I baked the ladybug body in the sports ball pan and baked her head in a cupcake pan. I covered her in stars and added the licorice antenna. It turned out great and the birthday girl was thrilled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did something exactly like this for my friend's daughter's birthday cake....it was so cute! I actually used pip cleaner strands for the antenas, googlie eyes, and licorice for everything. It turned out really really cute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this using fondant rather than buttercream. It was the hit of the party! Such a cute cake. Did have problems with the antena, was difficult to get ones than looked just right.
