Edible Sugar Shaped Bumbleees

Cupcake Picks are another Super Easy way to quickly decorate your Sweets. They just simply stick into your Cakes & Cupcakes and not only look adorable, but the kids can keep them to take home as a fun keepsake from the party.

These are also fun to place into plants to sent home with the kids as a Party Favor - awww now that would be adorable.


Bee Hive Cake

Now this is cute - you can create a Bee Hive Cake using the Bee Hive 3D Cake Pan. It creates Bees on the Cake with the mold too and you can add some of the Sugar Shaped Bumblebees on to give it an extra pop.

Drizzle your Frosting down the top to make it look like Honey dripping down. I would color frosting a Yellowish color to make this effect.

The Bee Hive Cake Pan is made of Heavy cast aluminum for even heating and exceptional durability it also has a Nonstick coating for easy release and quick cleanup.
