How to make a cute little lady bug:

 pink fondant
 green fondant
Gum Glue*
3/4" Circle Cutter
Scissors
#10 piping tip

* To make gum glue, mix 1/8 tsp. Tylose powder 
with 1 oz. warm water





Pinch a bit of black fondant
 and make a ¼” ball.   
Using the rest of the gumpaste,
 make an oval.
 Attach the two
 and set aside.



Roll out a small amount
 of pink fondant 
and using the ¾” cutter,
 make a circle.


With the scissors,
 cut a small “v” at one end of circle. 

 Press a line from “v” to other end of circle. Moisten the black ladybug
 with gum glue, and attach the pink ladybug wings. 


Roll a small amount
of green fondant very thin. 
Cut 5-6 dots from the green fondant
 using the small end of #10 piping tube.

May the saint protect ye-
An' sorrow neglect ye,
An' bad luck to the one
That doesn't respect ye
t' all that belong to ye,
An long life t' yer honor-
That's the end of my song t' ye!
