Ingredients

Instructions

  • Bake cupcakes and allow them to cool completely.
  • While cupcakes are baking and cooling, prepare green frosting.
  • Use grass tip (Wilton Tip # 233) to pipe green grass on top of cupcakes. Keep aside.
  • Roll out yellow fondant into somewhat of a cylinder shape. This will be the main body of the bee.
  • Use black fondant to roll out thin long ropes. These will be the stripes. Stick these on the bee's body with a bit of water. You can also just use a black edible marker to draw black lines.
  • Roll out a small ball of black fondant and shape it into a cone. This will be the bee’s stinger. Brush some water at the back of the yellow body and stick it there. Hold it in place for a few seconds so that it does not fall off and sticks securely.
  • Draw eyes with a black edible marker. Draw lips with red edible marker.
  • For the wings, roll out two balls of white fondant and using your fingers, flatten them into a petal shape. Brush some water on both sides of the bee’s body. Place your wings on the water marks.
  • If you do not want your bee to have antennas, you can stop here and you are done. If you want those, keep going for one last addition to your bee.
  • For the antenna, break a toothpick into two small pieces. Color them with black edible marker and insert them on the bee’s head.For the final touch, roll out two small black balls of fondant. Push them on top of the toothpicks and you are done.
  • Make as many bees as you need.
  • Place them on top of the frosted cupcakes, along with some flower candies. Enjoy!
