No, not a cute ladybug "beetle" - a black beetle. For a little boy, but cute. OOOOOOOK! I don't know where to start! I haven't even been able to find any ideas online yet! This client said she saw a ladybug cake made from a large Pyrex bowl and she wondered if I could do something similar but boyish. Oh, and it needs to have wings that are hovering above. HELP!!
black beetles are more sheet cake shaped.
here's a coloring page to use as a template
stack depending upon # of servings needed, either
stack two sheets one atop the other
split a sheet in half across its width and stack
detail out with legs, etc.
I'd cover it in black fondant.
