What are you most proud of? All the little bugs. They were very time consuming, but turned out really well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan ahead! When working with a technique you've never done before, plan in extra time so that you're not rushing to get finished at the last second. Details get over-looked or left out that way.

HI, I HAVE TO MAKE A LADYBUG CAKE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO USE ROYAL ICING FOR SOME LADYBUGS. HOW SHOULD I MAKE THE ROYAL ICING RED?

10/30/2012 Flag

Unfortunately red icing, royal or buttercream, is extremely difficult to get to a true red. I try to stay away from making either red or black, but sometimes there's no choice. For royal icing, just make your normal royal icing recipe and then add either Americolor True Red gel color or Wilton's No Taste Red gel color. Keep adding until you get to just about one shade lighter than the color you want. Then let it sit in an airtight container, at least over night. The color will darken as it sits. Be prepared with a LOT of red color, before you start adding it. It sometimes can take several jars, just for one batch of royal. Good luck!
