Ladybug birthday cupcakes

Our dear friends moved on Saturday and were brave enough to host a birthday party for their 4 year old on Sunday at their new home.  Impressive!  So I volunteered to make cupcakes for the birthday girl.  She requested ladybugs and I was happy to oblige.  I made perfectly chocolate cupcakes with my favorite vanilla buttercream grass and fondant ladybugs, funfetti cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and another fondant ladybug and fresh strawberry cupcakes with strawberry buttercream and m&m ladybugs.  I only sampled the strawberry which was good but perhaps a little dry.  Since I have said the same thing about other recipes, I should probably adjust my baking times.  The hubby tried the funfetti and gave his usual "it was fine" response.  Not much to go on there.  Oh well, just an excuse to try both the chocolate and funfetti recipes again!  Overall I was very happy with the decorations.  And I even made an extra batch of grass and roses for my sister's family to celebrate their move to the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  Win-win!
