There are so many ways you can create Ladybug Cupcakes - it is just finding the idea you like or combining some - the limit is only your imagination.
5 Easy Ladybug Cupcake Ideas
I created this page for all of those looking for some ideas and inspiration for creating some SWEET Ladybug Cupcakes.
A Ladybug Birthday Party is a very popular one anytime of the year, but even more so in the Spring and Summer. Ladybug Cupcakes are a fun treat to add to the festivities. The best thing is - you do not have to be a Professional Cake Decorator to make any of them.
Personally I love Ladybugs and every Spring there are tons of them flying around my house. There are even a bunch that get inside my home, but I do not mind at all. I feel that when I see a Ladybug it is Lucky and never do I kill them - they are Harmless, well to me at least.
So now let me share with you some great ideas to get you inspired to create your own Edible Ladybugs !!
Below are 5 of my favorite Ladybug Cupcake Ideas and once again they can all be mixed and matched - colors changed etc...
Ladybug Cupcake with Mini Oreo Face
This simple to make Ladybug Cupcake uses a Mini Oreo Cookie as the face. With the addition of some M&M Candies, Black Licorice and Red Icing - this yummy little Ladybug is complete. Is that cute or what?

Ladybug Cupcake with Wings
I love this Ladybug Cupcake that looks like it is about to take off. The wings are made with a Chocolate Wafer Cookie broken in half with some red Icing dots. The head of this Ladybug is made using a black gumdrop along with some black licorice antennae. And of course the cupcake is frosted Red.

Ladybug Cupcakes using Mallomars
I really like this take on Ladybug Cupcakes with the Ladybugs made using Mallomars. Mallomars are those chocolate covered marshmallow treats. Then they are frosted with red frosting and dipped into red sugar. The face and line down the back is done with chocolate frosting with M&M spots. So cute !!

Ladybug Cupcakes with a Strawberry Ladybug
Ok so these are Ladybug Cupcakes that I created. The Ladybug is created from a Strawberry with mini chocolate chip spots and a gumdrop head. The Ladybug is then sitting on a flower - do you love those or what? These are super EASY to make and everyone loved them.

Colorful Ladybug Cupcakes via Martha
Who says Ladybug Cupcakes have to be done in the traditional Red & Black? I love Martha Stewart's take on the cupcakes in all these fun colors. The Ladybugs are created by simply cutting the top of the cupcake and slicing it in 1/2. They added different colored gum drop heads with licorice antennae and frosted the cupcakes in fun pastel colors. Adorable !!

Creating your Ladybug Cupcakes
As you can see by the Ladybug Cupcake ideas I shared above anyone can create them. Just chose the method you like the best or combine them to create your own edible masterpieces.
You can also make your Ladybugs any color you want - change up your frosting colors or bring in lots of colored candies for the spots. I always say the limit is your imagination.
