These were a hit however we used a different color combination as we did pink and black instead. Still overall a great project and a lot of fun.

green just doesn't work for a lady bug.. just kept it red and black, and it looked great in piped green grass with a butterfly garden of cupcakes with an assortment of piped flowers.. Great for the spring garden party!

These are adorable! The color writers really save a lot of time and hassle. Everyone will think you spent hours on these, but the sugar sheets and cake punches really save you a ton of time and make these cupcakes stand out.
