The one thing that stands out in my mind is a beehive shaped cake with wired gumpaste bees. And I'd probably fill it with a honey flavored buttercream.

Just a thought...

Why did they choose bees? Hmmm, are they looking for something realistic or whimsical?

How about something more stylized? My first idea is out of royal. What color is the wedding? Cake?

I guess I need to know a little more about it. But this could be a really fun challenge.

These are from the Four Seasons in Las Vegas. You could expand on this idea to create a themed cake...

I found a few on different websites that might give you ideas

The third one doesn't have any bees on it, but I thought you could add a few in the flowers around the cake

Kinda would have to go whimsical with that.

Here is one from amazingcakes.net


There is a handmade bee on the very top

And this the same idea from sweetsophistications.com

I've seen 2 bee hive cakes in books that look very similar to one posted on this site. Maybe you could make a larger version of these, or a cake covered in flowers (maybe the same kind as the bride will be carrying) with little bees on wire sticking out of it.


They are in the books: 50 Easy Party Cakes by Debbie Brown, Quick and Easy Party Cakes for Kids: Over 130 Delicious Recipes byMolly Perham.

You could use the contoured round pans gradually decreasing in size, stacked, to resemble a bee hive in XXL format. Then add pretty flowers and bees. How fun!

Here are some pics from a google search:

I immediately thought of this cake, when you said "bee's". I love this babyshower cake from Just Fab. Pastries, you could modify the coloring and design to whatever you want. Darling cake!
