Wednesday, January 11th: Honeycomb Cupcakes (Green Tea Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting topped with Honey)

This week I continued to recreate cupcakes from the book, "What's New Cupcake", with these honeycomb cupcakes. The cupcake itself was a Green Tea flavour cupcake with vanilla icing. I then topped the cupcake with hexagonal sugar cookies topped with yellow sprinkles. I would advice baking the sugar cookies in advance to save time. Also, try to find a hexagonal cookie cutter; I was without one and it was extremely difficult to shape the cookies with just a knife. The bees on the cupcakes were made out of black jelly beans striped with yellow frosting and sliced almonds for wings. The first few bees I made I attempted to make separate and then transfer them onto the cupcakes. However too much of the yellow stripes smudged from this so eventually I learned to make the bees right on the cupcakes. Finally the cupcakes are topped with honey inside of the sugar cookie. After, you just place the hexagons together to form a honeycomb shape. 

I love the cupcake colour!
