So at 1045am this morning i get a call from my dad asking me what I would need to make ladybug cupcakes with fondant. I told him that I had never used fondant and he was like i'm sure it's not that hard! So we went to walmart and bought a cake mix, buttercream mix, wilton fondat, food coloring, and a rolling pin. I got home and had to rush to make these by 3. I started at noon and was done by two. I'm not too proud of them but for my first time with fondant i guess they're not that bad. I still don't know how I feel about fondant but I definitely know that I HATE having to mix in the color  Angry





comments, criticism, etc is appreciated. oh and idk why the red cupcakes look dusty but in real life they were bright red. i think it's cuz of the corn starch.

thanks,
karen

I think you should be proud of them.  They're absolutely darling! 

I never would have guessed that it was your first time with fondant.

You really came through in a pinch.  These are great and do not look like they were done in a rush at all

I am dying to know.. what sparked a ladybug cupcake emergency?

HAHAH!!! you guys are cracking me up!!! my dad used to work as a waiter at a fancy schmancy golf club here in san diego so he knows a lot about desserts and idk, food in general. oh yeah today was my little niece's bday party and the theme was ladybugs. My aunt [her grandma] made a cake but I really don't know what happened like she put it in the fridge and then when she took the cake out the sugar paste started "sweating" or something, i think it was condensation. Anyway they point is that he wanted to bring something as a present/back up so yeah... here are some pics of the cake she made. only the top layer is cake though, the bottom is just a Styrofoam layer. you can see in the second pic what i'm talking about.





anyway thanks for the sweet response everyone Smiley

Well, you've done it again.  Great looking cupcakes.  They are adorable...and that cake your aunt made...beautiful.  As far as I remember, you shouldn't put decorated cakes (or chocolates for that matter) in the fridge because they Will "sweat" and become gooey.(Is that a word?)  a bit of trivial.  do you know how many "dots" a ladybug has?  Well, I love the little buggers and made some from hypertufa.  After I put them in my garden a friend told me that they have 7 dots..mine had 5. 
Your cupcakes are super sweet (no pun intended) I know they were very much enjoyed and disappeared quickly.
