Step 5: Bees

Picture of Bees
Place the cookies on top of the cupcakes, sugared side up. Press into frosting to seal any gaps. Arrange 5 cupcakes on platter in a center row. Then place four cupcakes in a row on each side to create honeycomb effect. Level cookies so they touch at the sides and check for gaps between cookies and frosting.

Make the bees

Put yellow and black frosting into ziplock bags and tin snip small hole in corner.  Pipe 12 random black dots over cookies. Attach jellybeans to dots. Pipe a zigzag line of yellow frosting on top of jellybeans. Add 2 sliced almonds as wings. Pipe a black dot of frosting for the head and a small pulled dot for stinger. 

Just before serving, spoon 2 to 3 teaspoons of honey into center of each honeycomb.
