Bee birthday cake
I was asked to do a bee shaped cake, even though I was an entomology major in college! It really should have been a cartoon bee, so I tried to soften the effect by adding a lei made of gumpaste flowers. It is a family joke now, and the birthday girl wasn't terrified, after all! Bee is fondant covered WASC, wings of gelatin sheets. Next time I will use modeling chocolate for legs instead of pipe cleaners.
