Rated 5 out of 5 by Bearsstar from I really love the ladybug pan, and try to make it every chance I get. The first time I mainly followed the directions of your site, but the second time I used the mallow directions with just a few changes. I used a white cake mix, and colored mini marshmallows. I melted chocolate chips and carefully spread the melted chocolate on the spots, the face and the feet. For the antenna I used black licorice and cut thin strips for the eyelashes. The mouth was a red licorice rope, with red spice drops for "blush" on cheeks. I also gave her blue eyes this time. My family must have liked it because there were no leftovers. Using the chocolate chips does make it very sweet, but with the white mix it was better because the cake wasn't as sweet..and the colored marshmallows gave everyone a "oooh" surprise.
