  1. This is too cute! I love your happy little ladybug cupcakes and it’s so cool that even the “plant” in the middle is edible! What a fun idea. This would be a really cute centerpiece at a kid’s birthday party.

  2. Oh what a fabulous idea! This would be such a great party cake for spring and summer, though I guess if you add flowers for the season, it’s perfect all year round! And I love the added touches like the gummy worms! : )
