When a birthday comes around, do you scurry to find a dessert to serve that hits the spot? Next time, you won't have to look any further than the appetizing critter our staff of home economists cooked up! Getting this confection off to a flying start is a cinch. Begin by baking a delectably chocolate buttermilk cake—from LaVonne's recipe—in a bowl to form the buggy body. To create the colorful markings, you can use purchased black frosting and a quick-to-make red version. Then dapple the ladybug with vanilla chips, licorice and peppermint patties for details.
