cooking chocolate  white chocolate

Replace red marzipan over the cake, with hand slightly smooth over the surface on the top and sides. Work quickly because marzipan is melting fast. Cut off the rest around the ladybird body. Place in a cold place to harden. Meanwhile melt the chocolate. Take the ladybird cake out of the cold place, spread its head with the chocolate. Melt white chocolate and create the white of the eyes, place inside the chocolate rinds. By dampening of the chocolate rinds, stick chocolate dots on the ladybird body. Install the feelers.


colour marzipan

If you have marzipan of different colors you can cut different natural motives - flowers etc, and decorate the ladybird body around the periphery. Let the cake harden for several hours in a cold place before serving.
