Bee Cupcakes

August 14, 2008

In May I moved to a different part of NY to a beautiful duplex and had a small housewarming. I wanted to do something cute and special for my friends, but felt that a cake would be too much. Plus, I knew no one would cut into it themselves and I would probably forget about it to beg people to eat it.

I opted to make beehive cupcakes because nothing is more friendly and welcoming then yellow and bees! First though was the army of bees though.

The bees are made of fondant and the wings are slices of almonds. You can tell some of the bees are a little sloppy, clearly I was getting tired.

I made the cupcakes out of chocolate cake and they were fabulous.

I love the way My Sweet and Saucy’s cupcakes come out with the high-top icing. Even though I am not a fan of too much icing, I used her recommended cream cheese icing which I figured would mask all the sugar used. It was a great success, I made so many (only like 1/4 of them are shown) that I took them to work that Monday. Everyone raved about them too, maybe if they’re nice to me I’ll make them some cupcakes next week 😉
