    In medium bowl, beat butter, marshmallow creme, cream cheese and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Beat in powdered sugar until smooth. For each whoopee pie, spread 1 heaping tablespoon filling on bottom of 1 cookie. Top with second cookie, bottom side down; gently press together. To decorate, use black gel to draw half circle at top of pie for ladybug face and wings at each side. Use white gel to attach candy eyes and attach 3 candies on each wing for ladybug spots. Store covered in refrigerator.
