I have this bee cookie cutter but I'm not sure how to decorate it. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated? Pictures would be wonderful.

Thanks

How big is it? It gives an idea about how much detail you can get on it.

It's small. It's 3" from wing to wing.

Found another one. Not the same cookie - but may give you an idea.

What I would make:

Flood the middle with black icing, the wings with white icing, head with yellow icing.
Let it dry.
Pipe details:
Yellow: few lines in the body. If you want to get fancy: With still wet icing, shake yellow colored sugar on it, shake the excess off.
Make tiny dots as eyes, tiny lines as antennae. - either pipe or paint.
If you want and can, make structure in wings by piping white lines.

Edited: Easier - flood the middle (head and body) yellow and pipe the black details.

See attached picture.

Below is mine, which was decorated with RBC and royal. I took inspiration from Antonia74: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=6754
