Bumblebee Cake

Bumblebee Cake

This bumblebee cake was a surprise for a friend's birthday, she was going out in a bee costume so I made a cake to match.

I made 2 chocolate cakes in different sized oven bowls. I cut a quarter off the side of the smaller cake and stuck it to the side of the large cake to make the head and the abdomen.

I made a white chocolate frosting and coloured it yellow and covered both cakes.

The stripes are sliced fondant icing and the eyes are also made from fondant with a black edible gel for the pupils. The feelers are liquorice sticks.

For the wings I melted some white chocolate and piped 2 wing shapes onto some greaseproof paper and left it to cool in the fridge before placing on top of the cake to finish.

My sister decided to have a bumble bee-themed birthday party and I was set the task of making the cake.

I made two chocolate sponges : one was 6" round and the other 8" round. I iced them with chocolate and yellow buttercream icing. I piped the whole of the small cake yellow and, for the large cake, I made a yellow buttercream strip in the middle and then piped the black chocolate icing on either side. I used a black icing pen to draw the mouth and eyes and bought cola laces for the antennae.

I then melted white chocolate and made two large circles for the wings, painting on a shadow with dark chocolate. That was my Bumble bee cake! Every one loved it and it was a great success.

I baked this Bumble Bee Cake in a large Pyrex bowl. Using butter cream icing, tint the icing the color of yellow you desire. You will also need black. Using a star tip, decorate the bumble bee as pictured. We used different colored gummy slices for the wings and legs. The stinger and antlers are made from black Twizzlers, and were attached with toothpicks.

We added yellow lifesavers to the top of the antlers. The eyes were blue M&M's. The nose is a red gumdrop, and the eyebrows were made from runts. Since there is a lot of piping to do, you may want to refrigerate the icing for small periods of time. This keeps it from being so runny, and your tips will keep their form.

I got this Bumble Bee Birthday Cake idea from a few cakes on the site! I made this for my son's first birthday as his smash cake to use for his professional photos! His first birthday is a Bug Theme. The big cake for his party is a caterpillar! (also found ideas on this site)

I used half of a ball cake pan for the body, and I used a small Pyrex dish to make the head. I used a #21 icing star tip. Fondant is for the eyes, wings and tops of the antenna's! I dipped toothpicks into black icing to give them the black color. You just have to take the toothpicks out when the baby is ready to eat!

Homemade Bumble Bee Cake

Our baby girl's name is Isabel, but we cal her “Busy Bee.“ Naturally, her first cake had to be... a bee!! I used the Wilton Sports Ball cake pan for the head, a heart shaped pan for the wings, and a 3D Easter egg shaped mold for the body. I always trim and freeze the cake pieces a day ahead, as this make the cake easier to assemble and frost.

The body is slightly propped at an angle on the wings. I frosted the wings white first, then did the body with a star tip. I did the head smooth with yellow and then used a writing tip for the details. Pipe cleaners made the antenna, and there you go!
