When I was looking for ideas I saw some gorgeous cakes on Pinterest, then I thought, what sort of cute animals have cute tails. . . Bumble Bees of course - and that thought also took care of the type of cake I'd make too. I've never made a bee-sting & to be quite honest I'm not a fan of them. There's something about the custard filling that just doesn't sit well with me - give me loads of cream any day :-)
As these were going to daycare I used my new-old favourite banana cake recipe & did them in the doughnut maker, which was a slight disaster, but live & learn. . .
Cut in half. . . .
Pipe some really thick custard inside. I cheated & used custard powder ;-)
Make sure you make this the day before, or at least a few hours so it has plenty of time to cool in the fridge
Pop your tops back on
And they could be served as is. . .
Or you could top with cream cheese icing and a chocolate shard to turn them into Bumble Bee bottoms :-)
In retrospect I should have iced down all the side as well. . .
And maybe trying to work with chocolate on a 30+ degrees day with high humidity was not a clever idea either
This is what they look like form the top
