Nothing says summer like seeing cute fuzzy bumblebees flying from flower to flower. These adorable cupcakes are the perfect addition to any summery treat table.
"For this technique, you’re first going to need some cupcakes to decorate. You can use any recipe you like and any cupcake case, but I’ve gone with a vanilla cupcake with a honey buttercream in yellow honeycomb cupcake cases."
Top tip! Bake your cupcakes on a lower temperature to ensure a lovely flat top to decorate onto.
Making in advance?
The bees and the chocolate ‘honeycomb’ can be made in advance – once they're set, keep them in a cardboard box (like a cake box) with a piece of kitchen roll on top so that air can get to it, but dust can’t. If you put them in an airtight box, they may sweat and go soft. If you're making the chocolate ‘honeycomb’ in advance then, once it's set and you've peeled off the bubble wrap, break it into smaller pieces and place in a plastic box with the lid on and leave it in the fridge until needed. The cupcakes themselves can be made up to two days in advance, but any longer than that and they may go firm. Any leftover buttercream can be stored in a plastic box with a sheet of clingfilm directly on top to stop any crusting over, then topped with the box lid and stored in the fridge until the use-by date on the pack of butter.
