if u stick the GP antannae down into BC and cake, they might soften and break, so i would suggest fondant.

you could also stick a toothpick in the gumpaste antena and stick it in the head that way for added support

I used a wire tie thingy like on the bread bags and covered it with fondant. Just bend it to the shape you want, let it dry and then insert in the head. I have a ladybug cake in my photos if you want to check it out.

I used the red twizzlers. (Couldn't find the black ones) You can see the ladybug cake in my picutures. http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1291616

It's hard to see them in the large ladybug, but you can see them in the cupcakes and ladybug oreos. HTH.

I used a combo of fondant and gumpaste. I let them dry really well and they worked great. Sorry I don't have a pix to post.
