Any suggestions for making ladybug antenna using candy melts, for a cake? Thanks!

No, but if it's 2 dimensional (flat cake) It would be cute to use lollipops (could be dipped in candy melts to match cake) to stick up out of the cake. Would actually work for 3 dimensional, as well.
Oh, I hadn't thought of dipping lollipops in candy melts. That's a good idea, thanks!!
I would use black licorice. You could cut it thin enough, just for the antennas.
I use it for hair, eye lashes, etc., for all my cakes and cupcakes.
Black licorice whips?
Try using the jellied string candy or licorice.
Lay out a piece of waxed paper or parchment paper, I find it easier to draw the antenna before I try to pipe them. put melted chocolate in a small Ziploc bag or even better is a squirt bottle (you can get them at kitchen and beauty supply stores. Snip the corner (small snip - this will determine your antenna size) and pipe them onto the paper. Cool until hard and viola - your in business!
