My daughter's reception(age 5) classes are named after these insects, so when they had a bake sale for charity, I made these(with her help) and they went down a storm! And we had a lot of fun icing them. Use what chocolate you can get for the details. I used ready-to-use icing writing tube for speed, but you could make your own and pipe it on.
