Ladybug Cupcakes!

Had to challenge ourselves with doing three designs! As if working with fondant isn't enough of a challenge itself! It looked so cute though having a variety! Just hope we didn't cause a fight between any of the little girls at the birthday party! "I want that one!" "No, I wanted that one!" "Uh, there aren't anymore of that kind!"

These were chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting! And as far as the chocolate cupcake challenge, these were probably about as close as we have gotten to perfection. They had very good structure, texture, and moisture. Just have to figure out a way to make them a little more chocolatey. With the chocolate frosting they were perfect, but if the cupcake was every paired with a frosting other than chocolate the cupcake would be overpowered in an instant. We have one more trick up our sleeve to try. Stay tuned for the results....

Here is the recipe for the chocolate frosting though! It is absolutely delicious!! Yum yum!

Chocolate Frosting

6 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1/3 cup milk (I had to add a little bit extra)

Cream butter and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine powdered sugar and cocoa. Slowly add to creamed mixture. Add milk until the desired consistency is reached.
