Be Bee

Boy oh boy does this cake look inviting.  I wonder what kind of cake is under that icing.  It's probably a good thing I don't know, it's just be more temptation.  Did you ever hear people who work in bakeries say that after awhile you get sick of the stuff?  Yeah right!  I don't think so.  Maybe a lobotomy would take my mind off sweets but short of that I think cake will always be my favorite food. 

This cute beehive cake is the inspiration for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #168.  What comes to your mind?  There's those little bees, the hive, the color combo, the shapes, lots of stuff going on there if you take a good look.  If you play along with us this week you could win a prize from Stamp Fairy.  They're a great place for shopping, even better for winning a little shopping spree so get inky and play along.

My inspiration is obviously the bees.  Check out "Lenny Bee", isn't he a cutie pie?  He's from Stamp Fairy, so if you think he's cute (and who doesn't) you have got to go Stamp Fairy and shop.  If you're like me you'll probably have a hard time picking just one. 

Bees make me think of beehives, which makes me think of hexagons, which makes me think of the bees crawling around in the hive which gives me hives and at that point I stop thinking about bees and start coloring.
