As I mentioned in my First Bee Day Party Decor post, we used a bee theme to celebrate Little Miss on her first birthday. Of course, a bee theme required bee party food!
Since bees are attracted to flowers, I made a simple cupcake and iced rosettes on them. Considering it was my first ever attempt at a flower looking cupcake, it wasn’t too bad. I wanted to make bee cookies using the Chocolate Spice Cookies recipe from my friend, Wendy, but they were sad, sad, sad.
Of course you can’t have a sad bee at a bee day party, so I enlisted Wendy’s help to make the pink flower cut out cookies with the same recipe. She decorated the flowers with pink and yellow royal icing to match the flowers on her party invitation.
Everyone around here loves chocolate dipped pretzels, so I dipped pretzel rods in white chocolate then drizzled yellow and black candy melt on them to make stinger sticks.
I filled little take out boxes with Honey Combs cereal.
I also filled a couple of vases with alternating stripes of yellow and black Sixlets and a few others with chocolate non-pareils.
Finally, I made bee colored cake pops. I’ve made cake pops many times using the roll method. I wanted to try something lighter, so I bought the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker. I used a tip I found in the 175 Best Babycakes Cake Pop Maker Recipes to fill the wells using a pastry bag. SO smooth! Once they cake balls were cooled, I dipped them in white chocolate and then sprinkled with yellow and black sprinkles.
I think they turned out super cute, don’t you?
