I mixed the ingredients in a bread maker, on dough setting, and then rolled about two thirds of it into a ball, for the body of the bug. Just remember, when mixing bread dough in a bread maker, it's liquid ingredients first, with dry ingredients on top, and yeast last.
I used a sharp knife to make a slit in the body, for wings. Then, I pressed on a small ball of dough, rolled in baker's cocoa (just to add color), for the head, reserving a bit of dough to make...
...eyes, and spots. I rolled the spots in the cocoa too, and made slits in the dough to press them into the body of the bug.
Finally, I covered it with a clean dish towel, and let it rise for fifteen minutes, before baking for 20 minutes (covered with tinfoil for the first 15 minutes) at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Clearly, I had some proportion problems with the head, and eyes, and poppy seeds work better for adding color than baker's cocoa. So, instead of a ladybug bread, we enjoyed an ugly bug for breakfast. Of course, after seeing the ladybug larvae, that didn't seem so wrong.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
