Note: + Cooling time
- 450g pkt vanilla cupcake mix
- 60g butter, softened
- 2 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs
- 2/3 cup (160ml) milk
- 8g pkt Coles Mini Icing Flowers
- 8g pkt Coles Bake & Create Bumble Bee Decorations
- Natural honeycomb, to decorate
- 125g butter, softened
- 3 cups (480g) icing sugar mixture
- 1 tbs milk
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 12 holes of a 1/3-cup (80ml) muffin pan with paper cases. Make cupcakes using cupcake mix, butter, eggs and milk following packet directions (reserve icing sachet for another use). Cool completely.
To make the buttercream, use an electric mixer to beat the butter in a bowl until very pale. Gradually add the icing sugar, in batches, beating well after each addition. Add the milk and vanilla and beat until combined.
Place the buttercream in a piping bag fitted with a 1cm plain nozzle. Pipe the buttercream onto the cupcakes to make a beehive shape. Arrange flower and bumble bee decorations over the buttercream. Top with honeycomb.
