Hi there. I am really pleased to have been invited to guest post on Blissful Roots! For those of you who don't know who I am, my name is Angela and I blog over at A Typical English Home.
Mostly I write about home, organisation and cleaning, or I share free printables or blogging resources. But every now and then I will throw in a baking post. This is the topic I will be focusing on for this post, since so many parents are looking for ways to entertain the kids while the children are off school.
During the summer holidays, one of my boys' favourite activities is baking and they particularly like doing these ladybird cupcakes which are really simple to make and require minimal supervision. If you want to give these a go with your children, or if you just fancy making them yourself, then you will need:
White icing/ white chocolate chips/ mini chocolate beans
Start by covering the cupcake in red fondant icing.
Use a cocktail stick to make an indentation along the centre of the icing (for the wings). Then cut a head out of black icing - I use a circular cutter to make this bit quicker and neater.
Here is the finished ladybird cake. I used chocolate beans for the eyes, but you could also use a white chocolate chip or even just a ball of white icing.
Thank you to Brooke for letting me share a post on her blog today. I hope some of you will pop over to A Typical English Home to say hi!
Thank you, Angela for the adorable cupcake tutorial. Don't you love how she calls them ladybirds? I really wish I could be English for a day, or two, or more! :)
