  • Before beginning to decorate your cookies, you must ensure that your sugar cookies are completely cool. The quickest way to do this is to allow them to cool on a wire rack.
  • Roll out your red fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. With the same cookie cutter you used to cut out your cookies, cut out 12 circle pieces.
  • Press one red fondant circle onto each sugar cookie and smooth it out.
  • With your cookie cutter, cut out 6 circles from your black fondant. Using a butter or paring knife, cut the black fondant circle in half. 
  • Press the half circle onto each cookie – this will act as the ladybug’s head.
  • Add 2 googly candy eyes on each ladybug on the black fondant half circles. 
  • With your pink decorating frosting, frost out a little heart on each of your ladybugs’ head next to the googly eyes. 
  • Using Wilton icing tip #12, cut out small circles from the black fondant and press onto the body of each ladybug for the dots on the ladybug's back. You can use 3-4 dots for each ladybug.
  • Serve and enjoy these beautiful cookies!
