STENCIL FOR CAKE DECORATING WITH SUGAR SPRINKLES
Take a sheet of rice paper or tracing paper and carefully draw a design
or an object on its smooth side by lightly using a food coloring pen.
Carefully cut the inside of the design or object out of the paper with a
clean hobby knife. Now, you have made a stencil that you can use to
decorate your cake.
3) Generally icing works better than frosting for stenciling because it is smoother. After
you have baked and iced your cake, stick it into the freezer for about
fifteen minutes. This will keep the rice paper or tracing paper from
sticking to the top of your cake.
4) Remove your
cake from the freezer and position the rice paper stencil on top of the
cake. Dust the inside of the stencil with powdered sugar. Be careful to
only dust the inside of the stencil. This will be your outline. "Paint"
in the lines with tubes of icing in the appropriate colors.
When you are finished, carefully remove the stencil, and your cake is
decorated and ready to serve. If any of the powdered sugar shows, it can
be erased with a damp paint brush.
Coloring books provide great pictures to use for patterns or you can even use an extra party themed invitation, napkin or plate.

atop or create your own cupcake bee.

Press gently together and shape into bees. Use white
or black fondant to make wings and connect them to the bee with a
little water. Toothpicks can be inserted into the undersides to make it
easier to place them on the cupcakes. Set the bees out to dry for at
least an hour then paint the bees with gel food coloring to accentuate
the colors. Gently place fondant bees on the cupcakes.
If you prefer a quicker, easier option, frost cupcakes with yellow tinted frosting and use black icing gel to create bee stripes.
Or, make a bee using yellow frosting or icing, black candies (such as jelly beans) for eyes and Oreos for wings. Stripes can be made using black tube icing gel on these as well.

make the antennas.
