Picture of Oreo Sunflower Cupcakes (m&m Ladybug)

Who doesn't love oreos and cupcakes? It is this easy to brighten someones day. I love making these cupcakes. They are so easy and fun. Even though I really love oreos and cupcakes, my favorite part is the adorable, simple red m&m  ladybug.

Step 1: You Will Need...

Picture of You Will Need...

Red m&ms
Black food gel color
Foodsafe paintbrush
Leaf tip #352
Grass tip #233 (optional)
2 piping bags

Step 2:

Pick out he red m&ms. Dip you tiny paintbrush into a little black food coloring. Paint the little head and draw a line down the middle of the back. Then  make a few dots and both sides of the the line. Voila, you have a cute little ladybug.

Cut off the dome of all of your cupcakes. Pipe a little icing to keep the oreo in place. Put the oreo on the top of the cupcake.

Step 3:

Prepare some yellow icing (medium consistency) with a leaf tip #352. Squeeze, pull, and let go. Repeat this around the whole oreo. If you want you can practice this method on a plate or something. Then on top of that layer of petals do another, making the petals a little smaller. Then pipe the last layer of petals  a little on top of the oreo.(right inside the little ridge) Then just place you cute little ladybug on top of the flower.

Step 4:

If you want you can pipe some green grass around the cupcakes to finish it off. I think it looks nice to add some more color.
