Bumble Bee Birthday Cake

My super cute nephew turned one this weekend. I helped his mom put together his cake and some treats for the guests. 

He's really been into bee's lately so we knew we wanted a bee cake. After looking around the web, we couldn't resist making THESE bee cake pops from bakerella
Since my nephew followed the tradition of eating the cake all by himself we went with frosting instead of fondant. 

To make things easier I piped all the writing with chocolate onto parchment paper then transfered it to the cake after it hardened. 

We had to make sure everyone else could have a taste and made several more.  

One tip if you try these yourself, add the wings immediately after you pour your strips. We waited to long on some and had a difficult time getting the wings to stick to the bumpy surface. I got the cute eyeballs at Orson Gygi's, a local baking supply store. 
They're far from perfect but were still super cute and super yummy.

What a CUTE cake! I am just in love with those bees. My favorite is in the first photo of the bunch in the raffia-filled box. One little guy has yellow dripping down under his eyes. I love that they all seem to have a unique personality like this. Love it!Love it!Love it!
