Get stung on Valentine's Day by this sweet honeybee!

Let's Get Started:

Step 1:

Roll out yellow fondant thick (approximately 1/3" thick) and cut out heart shape with cutter.

Step 2:

With a knife tool, make linear indentations, starting at the bottom of the shape, across the top and finishing it off on the bottom of the other side. This will give it a puffy look to create the heart hive.

Step 3:

Roll two pieces of yellow fondant into a ball and then with your fingers, gently spread it out to make the shape more oval to create the bees' bodies.

Step 4:

Roll out some black fondant with the rolling pin and 1/8" guide rings. With the rolling cutter, cut four strips for the bees.

Step 5:

Glue the black stripes onto the bees (2 each) and trim off any excess. Make sure it wraps around enough to cover a bit of the bottom of the bees' bodies.

Step 6:

Roll out the light blue fondant with the rolling pin and 1/8" guide rings and then cut out four circles with round decorating tip #10. Grab a piece of the circle and pinch it together and with your other hand, flatten the opposite end a bit to create bee wings.

Step 7:

Glue the blue wings onto each of the bees with the pointed sides down. Once gluing them, hold them in place for a few seconds to ensure they are securely fastened to the bees.
