Adorable Vanilla Ladybird Cupcakes

These cupcakes are just so adorable you and especially the kids are really going to love them and love making them too. I had alot of fun cutting out the shapes and you dont need any fancy cutters to do it, just a knife and your fingers to shape the cutouts are enough – although cutters would make more precise corners and circles. I baked these in under 30 minutes and then spent another 30 minutes with the designs.

Pour Mixture Into Cupcakes
Shape the ready made icing into the appropriate shapes using a knife and your fingers. Layer these shapes onto the cooled cupcake using a little sugared water to help make them stick together (I found that just the icing alone was sticky enough to keep everything in place)
