Rated 5 out of 5 by trisha_n_puppy from Made these for my daughter's preschool class and they were a big hit. I didn't use the flower cupcake holder, so I used a tip 104 to pipe flower petals on the cupcake top. I also made some with green grass instead. The ladybugs, I made out of red chocolate that I melted in a truffle mold (anything round would work), then I piped the black dots and face on per the instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jbafaith from Several of my grandchildren love ladybugs, or bugs in general. I made the ones for the boys larger and more ferocious looking, less "lady"buggish and they all loved them! Hard to get them to eat the cupcakes and not play with them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by trisha_n_puppy from I modified this slightly and instead of using the flower cupcake, I made green grass for my ladybug (which I used red chocolate to make). The kids absolutely loved it!
