What's this white stuff on my bonsai tree?

This is what I found on one of my little trees today. It's about a centimetre long with a spongy texture.


I've a confession to make. I already know the answer to my question, but I'm curious to see how many people can identify this "stuff" and what they'd do if they came across something like this on one of their trees.

All will be revealed in a few days time.

    1. It's not a ladybug cocoon, but you're close. I'm not ready to publish my next post yet (still need to sort out the photos) but the answer is in this video:
