  • Tint small portions of marzipan with yellow and black paste food coloring (or use purchased colored fondant). For bee body, roll yellow marzipan into ropes about 1/4-inch thick. Cut ropes into 1-inch lengths. Use black colored marzipan to make bee stripe and eyes. Use sliced almonds for bee wings.
