I've done stained glass candy but that's the extent of my sugar candy experience (unless you count countless hours watching it done on food network).

I need to make bee wings that will be inserted into bee cupcakes. I was thinking a poured sugar mold but I actually have no idea how one would go about that?

My first thought was to make a cookie cutter into the shape I want it
find direction on how to melt sugar
call fire dept. and have them on standby icon_smile.gif
melt sugar and pour into mold
stick wings into cupcake

I made some little bees last summer and used white M&m's for the wings

I'm making larger bees-I'm using the egg cupcake pan.

I have some bees in my photos. They are on the winnie the pooh cake... i used the mini egg pan and then nilla wafers stick into them for the wings. Not sure if they'll look the same on the cupcakes, but i thought i'd throw that out there. good luck! usaribbon.gif

How about using large white gumdrops. Where you flatten them by rolling them out and cut wing shapes. They would have a slightly transparent look and somewhat sparkly because of the sugar. I got this idea from a Wilton bee cupcake. Here's the link.

Hope this helps.

Have you thought about using color flow, when I did butterfly wings I just piped them out let them dry and done. They turned out very cut and it's very easy

What about fondant?
