Vintage Pooh Corner Baby's 1st Birthday

I was sooo excited to be asked to do the dessert table for this old fashioned Winnie the Pooh birthday party! I have always wanted to have a reason to do a bee cake or a Pooh party, so YAY!
 Who doesn't love a cute beehive cake! This cake was a honey French vanilla cake with a lemon and honey buttercream glaze, topped with royal icing bees EVERYWHERE! I made my bees with royal icing and my food writer edible markers mixed with Americolor black gel paste for a little shine.
 I loved how golden the cake came out of the mold. A mold which I, by the way-LOVE! I have used it many times and it is much easier to use than other beehive molds I've used in the past.
 Can you even have a honey beehive cake without honey cupcakes? These beauties were a lemon vanilla cupcake with a honey cream cheese frosting. I may or may not have eaten all of the remaining frosting from the bowl and my daughter may have licked it clean.
 these beautiful chocolate cupcakes with a marshmallow whipped frosting were done at the clients request and torched to resemble a beehive. I loved the texture and depth they gave to the whole ensemble of desserts with the lightly toasted color, and really- does anything smell better than chocolate and toasted marshmallow?
 When having a Pooh party- Tigger tails are a must! I always love seeing these at Disneyland, and had fun singing the "wonderful thing about tiggers" as I dipped and drizzled chocolate everywhere!
What a beautiful party set up!
