Make up your cake mix or own yummy cake mix and add red food colouring :D
be quite generous to get a dark red colour.
Pour your red cake mix into one of them baking trays for little cakes.
don't forget cake cases :D
In the oven at 270c for 20mins or so, you know they are cooked when you can poke them with a fork or something lgihtly and it doesn't leave a hole :)
when they are done LET THEM COOL !!
i always want to decorte things straight away in my impatience >.<
While you are waiting for them to kool we can make the buttercream icing :D
you add a big dollop of butter/maragine and lots and lots of cing sugar into a bowl and mix mix mix until it's smooth enough to be spreadable
add a drop of milk to help it mix smoother if needed
now when the cakes are cool we cut the top off with a knife
then cut that bit that we cut off in half :)
like when you're making butterfly cakes these are the wings :D
Cover the main bit of the cake with a layer of buttercreamm
And place the wings, straight side up flat onto the cakes, leaving some space at the front so we have room for a head
Them splodge dots of black food colouring on your wings :D
now add a blob of buttercream for a head and add two little silver balls for eyes, or anything else you want to use for eyes really :)
your love bug cakes are done :D
