Make a small ladybug and put it on top of another cake.....slightly bigger and decorate the bottom green with fondant and fondant or royal icing as grass or the person's name/event that the cake is for on the bottom....

how about making a regular layered circle cake, filling the layers, chill the cake and then carving the sides down to round them and skipping on the ball pan.....I just made a ball pan cake and it was small...this would enable you to make more servings......and keep it all ladybug or wilton has a ladybug pan that takes the equivilant of one boxed mix........

I have the 8 inch half ball from inside the betty crocker cakepan that makes different layers.That makes a really good size bug.

You could use a big glass bowl or round bottomed cassserole dish.

I made a ladybug cake that is in my photos if you want to see....I used a 9x13 sheet cake and stacked them on top and carved the shape of the ladybug from that. It was a big one and it turned out really cute! Good luck

My photos has two ladybug cakes with the ball pan. I made 1/2 ball and put the ladybug on top of another cake.

What about the 9x2 round contour pan? It already has curvature on top of the cake.
