These cookies were for my coworker’s best friend. She had a ladybug themed birthday party!
I used my balloon cutter for these. (I also have a mini ornament that would work for mini version!)
I outlined them in a thick black line, then dropped a dot in the center, and another in the center of the top half.
First I piped the head, then I piped the wings fanning away from it. Took me a few tries to get the angles right.
I always fill in my black first, because it tends to be much messier if I make a mistake!
Then I filled in the red, with a little less icing than normal…
…because I dropped big black dots right into it for my ladybug’s spots.
Finished them off with some curly antennae, and viola! Cute little ladybug cookies.
Mini ladybugs would be totally cute for a little girl’s birthday!
