Let's Bake Lady Bugs

Updated on August 17, 2012

Lets Bake!!

My little girl wanted to do a food project. When I asked her what she wanted to do she said she wanted little lady bug cakes. So this is what we came up with!

A food project also comes with a lesson for the day.

Lesson for the day: Each lady bug is different. Different shape, different spots. No two are the same; just like people.


  • 1 Prepared Cake
  • Frosting
  • Cake Pop Sticks, Optional
  • Butter Cream Frosting
  • Candy Quick, Dye Red
  1. Follow the recipe on the back of the box.
  2. Allow cake to cool.
  3. Once the cake is cooled transfer cake to a bowl and start crumbling.
  4. Add just enough frosting to make cake balls.
  5. Start making the cake balls. Make some big enough to use as a face and regular size cake balls to make the body.
  6. Once all are made use your butter cream frosting as a face. Use chocolate frosting for eyes.
  7. Dye the rest of the frosting red and spread on bodies. For lady bug cakes: Once that is done put small dabs of chocolate frosting to make the black spots. For Cake pops: dip cake pop stick in candi quick then insert into a cake body. Did in dyed candi quick.
