Sweet Jewels: Honey Bees with Pâte d’Amandes

A new challenge: small honey bees made with pate d’amandes and slivered almonds. Size length about 1/2 inch!

You need:

  • Pate d’amande (for 6 bees I used about of one cubic inch)
  • little cocoa for brown color
  • little turmeric for yellow color

Procedure (follow the pictures!):

  1. With the yellow color you shape the abdomen (about 1/4 inch)
  2. A thin brown string will imitate the segments of the abdomen.
  3. Two mini balls will form the thorax and the head.
  4. Fix abdomen, thorax and head pressing light together.
  5. 4 Slivered almonds inserted in the thorax with be the wings.
  6. Two mini strings fixed with your nail will be the antennas.
  7. I used two mini sugar pearls for the eyes.
  8. Ready for decorations!
