Bumblebee Cake

After making the ladybug cake, I had to keep going. But, there is only so much cake this family can safely eat without developing eating disorders or high-tailing it off to Weight Watchers...so I had to wait.
Even though we have 4 March birthdays to celebrate in this family, I couldn't wait much longer to make another fast and easy round googly eyed cake like the ladybug...

Introducing the Bumblebee...instructions coming soon...

I'd love to learn how you made the wings for the bumble bee!

Hi, Tobey! The wings were made using melted chocolate candy wafers. I drew out the wings on some copy paper and placed it under a sheet of wax paper. When the chocolate was melted, I filled a sandwih bag, snipped off the end and "drew" the wings following the outline of the drawing under the wax paper. The problem I had was the weiht of the chocolate. The wings had to be strong so they wouldn't break (although one DID break), but I made them to heavy. The wings on the butterfly cupcakes hold up nicely but they are small and can stand up easily. I'll have to re-think the larger cakes wings.

Maybe you could try "painting" the chocolate on the wax paper (with a new paint brush of course!) Maybe building up thin layers would be lighter...
