"Bee My Honey" Cupcake Tutorial

These beehive cupcakes are super easy to make.  I used pre-made Bumble Bee Icing Decorations from Wilton.  These would be great for Valentine's Day, Anniversary, or a Birthday party. 

"Bee My Honey" Cupcake Tutorial

Yellow cake cupcakes (or white cake mix tinted yellow)
You favorite frosting recipe (see mine here)
Buttercup Paste color
Size 12 Round Decorating Tip
Decorating Bag (I use disposable ones)

Tint your frosting.  Use just a small amount of paste to color the frosting. It doesn't take much and if you put too much in you can't go back! Add icing to decorator bag fitted with Size 12 round tip.  You can use a star tip if you like but I prefer the smooth look of the honey bee hive. 


Make a small mount of frosting in the middle of the cupcake.

Starting on the outside edge swirl the frosting on.  I don't usually stop but wanted to show you what it looked like before I went on.
Finish the bee hive.  That little mount of frosting is what the top of the hive sits on.  
Add bees before frosting dries.  See that tip on top?  After the frosting dries a bit you can pat it down with your finger.  You'll notice in the next photo it isn't there.
 Have fun decorating!
