So a friend of mine wants a ladybug cake for her daughters 1st birthday to match invitations /decor for 40-45 people. She said one big ladybug or a smaller one on a round cake. Surprise her she said. Which would you do for that size of cake? I thought maybe the smaller on top for a "smash" but she said whatever as long as it's cute. BC w/ fondant accents. I've done a single ladybug before but it only served about 25-30. What are your guys thoughts? Im torn between the two. Cake is due next Sat. Thanks a bunch icon_wink.gif

A ladybug to feed that many would be so big I would think that you'd start heading into the horror film freakishly large insect range.... icon_eek.gif

There is a recipe in the recipe section that is called crusting cream cheese that works great.

Have you searched the forums for "ladybug"?

Here's a cute one done by a CC member:

Lol...I thought a big one would look crazy too! Thanks for the cake pic, that's the same decor she has too! Think I'll go w/ a smaller ladybug on top, looks better anyway icon_wink.gif
