Royal Icing BEE cookies

For my sisters shower I gave out little butckets filled with Bit O' Honey candy, small baby food jars of honey and sugar cookies in what else bees and hives.
To decorate the bees I put the black icing on first then while it was wet sprinkled with sanding sugar (black), after it dried for about an hour (so it wouldn't bleed into the yellow and white) I filled in the yellow areas and sprinkled that with sanding sugar (yellow) so they would look like fuzzy bumble bees and not wasps. After the yellow dried I outlined, and flooded the wings, let that dry for about 20-30 minutes and then piped the lines to give it dimension.

The hive was done similarly by separating out the areas. Once dried I piped black dots on top and little bumble bees (I used a #2 tip for this part)

Piping once section of the beehive, let dry for 10-20 minutes then outline and fill the other sections.

Let dry at least 24 hours before packaging them, but could be eaten immediately if desired.

Beautiful Cookies. I wish I was crafty enough to attempt this. (BUT I got married & lost my confidence...)

Thank you so much for sharing this! A friend asked me to make some bee cookies for a party and this is exactly what I had envisioned, but I just didn't know how to go about doing it. My bees are halfway done right now and so far so good. I'm so glad I found this on google.
