Bumblebee Birthday Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 11:47 AM
Ashley wanted a showpiece birthday cake for her daughter's 5th birthday. She was having a bumblebee themed cake (which is appropriate since we're in the beehive state :) This three tiered cake was covered in marshmallow fondant and decorated with tiny edible MMF bumblebees. The cake was S'mores Cake, Lemonberry Cake, and Turtle Power Cake (Check out my flavor list at SaltCakeCity.com).

I made the little bees by forming oval yellow balls with fondant. I cut out tiny white little circles for wings and then let them dry and harden over night. I painted black lines on the yellow bodies with a paintbrush and black food coloring. I let that dry a bit, then shoved the little wings in the sides of the body. I curled thin flower wire and then inserted one end into the bees. It was so simple for such a nice detailed touch.
