Are these ladybug cupcakes easy to make with kids? 

Yes they are! If you watch the video in this post, my 4 year old son @DashBakesTheGreats shows how easy these Valentine cupcakes are to make as a decorative and sweet Valentine dessert! Make sure to check out his baking Instagram @DashBakesTheGreats for more kids baking inspiration and ideas!

What inspired these Valentine cupcakes? 

We were inspired by a photo we found on a stock website used in a round-up of Valentine cupcakes! There was no recipe attached to these lovebug cupcakes so we decided to make our own!

How do you make ladybug cupcakes?

You will need plain unfrosted cupcakes (buy or make your own either store-bought mix or from scratch, whatever you prefer!). Then all you need is to create the ladybug features which you can do easily with pink, red and white fondant. Add googly candy eyes and Valentine sprinkles to finish the look! 

Ladybug Cupcakes – Ingredients: 

  • Plain chocolate cupcakes
  • Pink, white and red fondant
  • circle cookie cutter 3″
  • Candy googly eyes
  • Valentine sprinkles
  • White frosting gel (the kind you write letter with)
