Method

STEP 1

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.

STEP 2

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.

STEP 3

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.
