Bumblee Cupcakes with Colored Icing

bumblebee cupcakes

I was over at my sisters place and since they were going out decided to spend some time creating a new cupcake design. I loved the look of the bumblebee so decided I would give it a go. My sister liked it too, so with my newly acquired Fondant set i proceeded to sculpt my icing onto my freshly baked cupcake.

I was buzzing with enthusiasm and soon had my masterpiece before my eyes. And it looked too good to eat… well so i thought. Next came out the camera and a few props to keep a record of my creation and post it onto my website. Its really quite easy to make and a simple cupcake recipe below is all you need.

Bumblee Cupcakes with Colored Icing


  • 1 box of Vanilla Cupcake Mix
  • Colored Ready To Roll Icing Yellow, Black and White
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter
  • Cupcake Cups


  1. This recipe can also be found here
  2. Mix the Vanilla Cupcake mixture with the eggs and butter in a mixing bowl for 2 minutes until mixture is well combined. Preheat oven to 180 C.
  3. Pour the mixture into cupcake cups until about half to two-thirds full. Bake in oven for 20 to 25 minutes then set aside to cool.
  4. Shape the ready made icing into the appropriate shapes using a knife and your fingers. Layer these shapes onto the cooled cupcake using a little sugared water to help make them stick together ( I found that just the icing alone was sticky enough to keep everything in place)
  5. Serve immediately or store in airtight containers.
