I have a bride that has asked me to make 100 bumble bee cookies. I have yet to find a pretty design and don't have a clue ask to where to get a cookie cutter.

There are so many talented people here. Can I please get some direction? Pleeeeeeeeeeese????

Fancy Flours has 2 different bumble bee cutters.

This one is just the bee: http://www.fancyflours.com/cookie-cutter-bumblebee.html

This one is a hive and mini bee: http://www.fancyflours.com/cookie-cutter-beehive-and-bee.html

HTH!

pterrell, thank you for your reply. The first one looks interesting but I cannot "visulize" what it would look like decorated. Is the left side the head and the right side the stinger?

I so LOVE the first one on Eisskween's list. Just adorable.
They look like fondant, yes/no?

I really don't know. I don't happen to own that cutter. I have a hard time seeing that one, too. I do have the 2nd cutter. I haven't used it yet, but it is super cute.

If you go to the galleries and do a search you'll find about 3 pages of bumble bee cookies.
Click on the search in the dark purple heading. Search for BUMBLE BEE using the cookies filter.

Thank you to everyone. I love this website, you are all so talented and amazing. I hope you are all blessed beyond measure and I hope one day to be able to share information to another that is seeking it.

For now, I am the fruit of your labours. Thank you very much.

I sent you a PM, but here's for anyone else who would like the information. I recently took part in a cookie exchange, and one of the decorators did the most adorable bumble bee cookie! She used a heart cutter, turning it so the pointed end is on he right, fat part on the left. The bottom portion of the heart is decorated as the bee's body, with the point being its butt. The top half of the heart is decorated as the wings. Cutest thing ever! Her photos are on flickr.com, and she is A Master Creation.

It's even better when you see the cookie in person! I love how she even put on a mini-heart....perfect for a wedding favor!

I did some with the copper cutter from a Martha Stewart set of insect-shaped cookies cutters I bought (wow...10 years ago, discontinued now I think?) but I think similar cutters are out there at www.coppercutters.com and www.kitchengifts.com ? I wanted them to have airy wings, so I did those in a brushed embroidery technique.

i can't find that bee cookie on flickr; can you please post the link? I'd love to see it. Thanks so much.

Here is that cookie from A Master Creation. Thank you everyone for your input. I have an idea and I will post when I have completed a sample.

Thanks. That's really creative.

Echooo3 Posted 11 May 2010 , 10:50pm

We I found a design I liked and did a sample of seven. The picture is in my photos. I couldn't get it to upload here.

I think they turned out cute. She doesn't want faces on them.

They're adorable!!

GeminiRJ Posted 12 May 2010 , 10:51am

VERY cute! So bright and cheery!

Echooo3 Posted 12 May 2010 , 12:39pm

Thanks.

Do you think they should have an outline?

GeminiRJ Posted 12 May 2010 , 5:30pm

I'm usually all for outlining, but I think these look pretty nice as they are! Outlining will add A LOT of time to the project! If you want to give the wings more definition, you could add white sanding sugar while the icing is still wet.
