Just endeavor as well as say me these are non the cutest petty cupcakes you’ve ever seen. Can’t create it, tin you? I’m finding myself obsessed amongst all things bee-related lately, thus I was thrilled when 1 of my co-workers asked me to brand bee cupcakes for her daughter’s birthday party. Apparently her missy is a big fan of The Hive (which I had never heard of before) as well as thus bees were solely fitting.
These bee cupcakes took a petty fourth dimension to brand merely were overall pretty tardily as well as straightforward. I used my favorite chocolate cupcakes every bit the base, as well as whipped upwards some marshmallow buttercream to larn on top. For the bees themselves.
1 vii ounce container marshmallow fluff
8 ounces butter, room temperature
vi cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 teaspoons one-half as well as one-half or cream
1/4 teaspoon dark-green gel nutrient color, to a greater extent than or less every bit needed.
- To brand the bees, cutting the jellybeans inwards half.
- Stick each one-half onto the front end of a jordan almond to shape the bee’s head.
- Using the decorating gel, pipage stripes onto the dorsum of each jordan almond.
- Cut wings from the carbohydrate canvass as well as house on transcend of the almonds. I flora that the easiest means to brand wings was to cutting rectangles that were around 1/2 inch past times 1 inch, as well as then gently flexure inwards one-half as well as cutting out a one-half circle shape.
- If yous are really gentle amongst them, the carbohydrate canvass won’t intermission inwards one-half as well as and then the wings volition stand upwards up nicely on the dorsum of the bees.
- Let the bees sit down out for a spell thus the decorating gel volition theater up.
- To brand the frosting, trounce the marshmallow fluff as well as butter together until calorie-free as well as fluffy.
- Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, as well as 1 teaspoon one-half as well as half, as well as mix until smooth.
- Add to a greater extent than one-half as well as one-half every bit needed to shape a smoothen frosting. Beat until calorie-free as well as fluffy.
- Add the dark-green nutrient coloring as well as trounce until good distributed.
- Pipe onto the cupcakes using a grass tip (Wilton tip #233).
- Top each cupcake amongst a bee as well as enjoy!
- And immediately for my packaging tips! I discovery myself making cupcakes for parties to a greater extent than as well as to a greater extent than oft lately, thus I idea it mightiness endure fun to portion some of my favorite tips for packaging them.
- I honey to purpose disposable foil baking pans amongst lids for transporting them. 12 cupcakes agree perfectly within as well as the lids are tall plenty that yous tin pile the frosting high as well as it won’t larn smushed.
- They’re also really cheap (I paid $2.50 for a two-pack) as well as reusable every bit well.
