Ladybug Themed Birthday Party

After looking for lots of inspiration for our ladybug party, this was the cake we decided on.

I think it turned out pretty darn cute!

Here's the DIY notes:
  • I cooked the body in a heat-safe glass bowl, and then I cooked the head in a ramekin, but a muffin cup would work equally well.
  • I cut the head to fit snuggly against the body of the ladybug, and then I got out my star tip and went to town making a red body!
  • For the spots, I used Oreos and then crushed oreos for the head and black line down the center of the body.
  • Because I like chocolate licorice quite a bit but DON'T like black licorice, I used chocolate for the legs and antenae. For the legs, I cut the licorice in half and just stuck them in, but then for the antenae, I cut them in half width-wise and length-wise so they would be short and skinny.

Turned out cute, and the birthday girl was happy. Her younger sister kept proclaiming all day that "I must eat that ladybug!" Eventually, we did. :) 

For birthday decor, we hung up black and red streamers and had black and red balloons scattered about. I also drew little ladybugs to hang on the walls. Fun day for all.
