Ladybug / Ladybird

A simple ladybird, inspired by the small child’s toy shown to the side; a dome of Victoria sandwich cake covered in bright red buttercream, with a smaller black dome for the head. ¬†Black fondant was used for the spots and edge of the wing cases, and yellow smarties were the eyes. ¬†Only the antennae – black pipe-cleaners – were not edible.
