Leaf the ladybugs alone

For my cousin’s daughter’s 1st birthday party, I decided to make 2 ladybugs lounging on a big leaf.  For the ladybug bodies, I used a ball pan and shaped the head from the “bump” of the cake, rising from baking, in the ball pan.  For the giant leaf, I used two 9×13 pans…I had very little cake scraps left!  I made lemon cakes with raspberry curd filling and whipped cream frosting for the ladybugs and leaf.  I piped melted chocolate to create the antennas (which you don’t see here as I added them when we got to the party and this is a pix before).
