Lady Bug Cakes
This was the first time I used a spray on food color. I bought red. It worked pretty well and I was grateful I didn't need to buy and use an entire bottle of no-taste red food coloring. Like I mentioned in Annabelle's birthday post, I made the ladybugs using a few different pans I had on hand. The big lady bug was made with one of the halves of the ball cake pan, and the head was a mini bundt pan. The little lady bug used a mini bundt pan for the body and a cupcake for the head. Everything is in buttercream accept for the pipe cleaner antennae.
And a picture of the lady bug cake along with the inspiring lady bug pillow pet. I know the pillow pet has a skin-colored face, but I think it looks a little weird so I stuck with the all black face.
