I first baked 2 9″ round cakes and 2 8″ round cakes. After they cooled I iced 1 of each with chocolate frosting from Betty Crocker. I then put the remaining 2 cakes on top.
I used vanilla frosting with yellow food coloring and dark chocolate frosting also from Betty Crocker for the colors of the bumble bee. I used a star tip and first did the dark chocolate stripes, then the yellow.
On the face I used a knife to spread the dark chocolate frosting on. The wings were melted green chocolate molded into 2 circles. Be careful not to make them too thick because they will not stand in the cake.
This bumble bee cake was a huge hit with everyone.
