Take a regular cupcake and turn it into and a spring time delight! These Orange-Vanilla Bean Cupcakes are topped with a delicious Orange-Vanilla Butter Cream “grass” piped on with a Wilton #233 Grass Tip and adorned with a tiny marzipan ladybug made from marzipan paste tinted red and black. Roll into little balls to create an edible ladybug.


Place the finished cupcakes into little paper baskets and you have a terrific treat worthy of any Easter Brunch!

You can find the entire recipe for one dozen Orange-Vanilla Bean Cupcakes here, I added a little orange extract to the butter cream to give it an Orange-Vanilla flavor.

The easy directions for the “grass” and “ladybug” can be found here.
