"We've covered our ladybug's body with a nice red fondant. So now we're going to work on the ladybug's face, and this was the little piece that we added to it earlier. Just going to give that just a little smoothing out. Now for the ladybug's face, I'm going to use some black fondant. I'm going to roll that out and we're going to cover our ladybug's head. Alright, and for that we'll use a little piece of black fondant; we don't need that much. Now we're going to roll that out. I'll use a small roller for this one. We'll roll it out just big enough so we can cover our ladybug's head. I think this should be more than enough. We don't have to worry so much about covering this portion, because that's going to go up against the back of that. So we're going to just make sure that it's covered. We're going to take our fingers, and we're going to round it out. And we can use this same tool, just to smoothen it out a little and push in the edges. Alright, and then we're going to cut away the excess fondant. Then you're actually just going to pick your ladybug up - you're going to push in the edge here, just a little bit. What you can do is just take a regular toothpick - I just have to have something just so that I make sure that they are held together. I'm just going to stick the toothpick in the portion that's straight, and then this other edge is going to go right into here. Just going to add just a little water, and then we're going to stick our ladybug's face right into the middle. Alright, and now that that's done, we're going to give the ladybug some eyes and some spots, and we'll finish her off. "
