Ingredients For The Lovebug Ladybug Cookies

Lovebug Ladybug Cookies

3-5 oz. red fondant
2-3 oz. black fondant
24 candy googly eyes
Pink decorating frosting

Directions For Making The Lovebug Ladybug Cookies

Before beginning, you must ensure that your cookies are completely cool. The quickest way to do this is to allow them to cool on a wire rack.

Roll out your red fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. With the same cookie cutter, you used to cut out your cookies, cut out 12 circle pieces.

With your cookie cutter, cut out 6 circles from your black fondant. Using a butter knife, cut the circle in half. Press the demi circle onto each cookie – this will act as the ladybug’s head.

Using Wilton icing tip #12, cut out small circles from the black fondant and press onto the body of each ladybug. You can use 3-4 dots for each ladybug.
