Honey Bee My Valentine Cakes
Ingredients
  • Hostess Twinkies Snack Cakes
  • Wilton candy eyeballs
  • White and Milk Chocolate chips to make modeling
  • Black frosting
  • Frosting or use Nutella, peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Begin by preparing your modeling chocolate. While the chocolate is cooling unwrap your Twinkies
  2. Once chocolate is cooled you have a nice chocolate clay to work with.
  3. Roll out black and white modeling chocolate to about 1/16" thickness. Use a knife or pastry wheel to cut 1/2" wide by 5"-6" long strips from the brown.
  4. Gently shape these around your bee to make the stripes of the bee as pictured, cut off excess at the bottoms as needed.
  5. Using a sharp knife gently cut the wings from your white modeling chocolate, once cut to desired shape place them into the fridge for about 10 minutes to allow them to harden.
  6. Cut off about 1 1/2" pieces, rolling them with your hands to make thin logs and curl up one end to make antennae. Once you have reached your desired shape place them into the fridge for about 10 minutes to allow them to harden.
  7. To finish decorating your bees, Use a dab of frosting to attach the wings and eyes. Use a toothpick to poke two holes in between the eyes and the first stripe. Then stick an antenna in each hole. Paint on a black frosting smile.
  8. Enjoy!
