Cupcake Tuesday: Bumble Bee Topped Cupcakes

These cupcakes were for a sweet little second birthday! The bees are made of royal icing. I like to use this recipe. I made the bee bodies and wings separately, then attached them when I iced the cupcakes. This nice yellow icing is actually tinted with a vegetable based food dye. This was a first for me. I wasn't sure I would be able to get the desired color I was looking for, but I was very happy with the end result and am now really interested in looking into that as an option for clients who would prefer that! I swirled the icing to look like they were sitting on little bee hives! It was so much fun, as always! Till next Tuesday!
