While we're waiting for our ladybug cake to chill a little bit in the refrigerator, I'm gonna prepare my fondant. I'm gonna use red; like red and black, and a little white for our ladybug, and this is gonna be the base for her body. Just gonna take a little sugar and cornstarch, and we're gonna roll our fondant out. Don't get too much sugar and cornstarch on it, so we keep it nice and bright red, alright. Now that we've rolled it out, we're gonna push it down just a little bit. And use our large roller, and you're gonna roll it out and keep turning it, so you get a nice even piece of fondant. You wanna get this about quarter of an inch thick. Alright, now that this is rolled out, I'm gonna retrieve my ladybug and we're gonna give her some cover.
