Honey, I'm Home


{A Fondant Hive with Gumpaste Honey Bees and Assorted Flowers}

I decided I would like to make a beehive with some little honeybees out of gumpaste. The beehive was fairly easy, but a little time consuming to make. However, for me it was the little honeybees (1/2”) that were a tricky thing to create. My first attempt resulted in little flat bodies to which my husband ever so delicately asked “aren’t bees supposed to be round?”. I remember at the time not being particularly overjoyed with this assessment, but I went back to the drawing board (okay my gumpasting board) and this is what I came up with. I am pleased I redid them as the original version were not nearly as cute as these little rolly poly ones are.
