Cake with fondant daisies and a bumble bee

I love flowers. They are colorful, delicate and oh so pretty! And that was my inspiration for this cake. As for the bumble bee…. it was just too cute so I had to add it into the cake Smile with tongue out

Innitially, I only decorated the top of the cake with daisies…

But then, I decided to add more daisies around the cake too. Which one do you like? Cake with more daisies or cake with fewer daisies?

I have already posted a tutorial on making fondant daisies HERE

And I will now do the tutorial for the bumble bee:

Step 1:
Roll out yellow fondant into somewhat of a cylinder shape. This will be the main body of your bee.

Step 11:
Roll out the two smallest balls of circles you can. These will be the bee’s eyes.

NOTE: Instead of using fondant, you can also use edible paint or marker for the eyes and the mouth.

Poke a hole with a toothpick where you want the eyes to be positioned.
