According to studies, done by clever people and advocated by the likes of David Attenborough, if all the bees in the world were to die tomorrow, the human race would only have about 4 years left to survive, such is their importance. It’s a chilling thought! Especially with the knowledge that here in the UK, more than 50% of the population of native bees has fallen in the last 50 years. 50 per cent!!! To raise awareness, DEFRA started #BEESNEEDSWEEK and I wanted to make this video to tell you guys how important it is, through the medium of sponge and buttercream!

Recipe –

For the Honey Caramel…
105g caster sugar
170g strong flavoured, local honey
120ml water
200ml double cream

For the Honey Swiss Meringue Buttercream…
150g caster sugar
2 lg egg whites]200g soft unsalted butter
2-3 tbs strong flavoured local set honey

    I'll bet you a £ you also have a tattoo of a birds nest. 😉
    super awesome tats

  2. Alex Bando says:

    Hi Jemma, if I don’t have self raising flour, is it ok to use the same amount of all purpose flour + one or two teaspoons of baking powder?

  3. stavros kyritsis says:

    Bees as a species aren’t actually endangered. Just a few species of Hawaiian bees were recently added to the endangered list and the media took it and turned it into a frenzy.

    How many calories per cupcake?

  11. Clare Hughes says:

    I’d never heard of #beesneedsweek I love these cupcakes 😍

  12. SV S says:

    The internet says you should never cook honey.

  13. Jill Pritchard says:

    Hi Jemma, as you know, I live on the west coast of America and we have lots of different products here than what you use. One example is Caster Sugar. I have never heard of it so can I use regular granulated sugar instead or is it more like 10x sugar(confectioners)? I finally found the Golden Syrup at nearly $8.00 per bottle. Can I use Karo Corn Syrup in its stead paying only about $3.50 per bottle and having twice as much? I have told lots of people about your channel but they don’t understand or want to figure out the grams to ounces conversion. I tell them it’s on the scale but some people are just picky. I’m from Ireland but left as a girl but still remember conversions from primary school. They just enjoy eating my cooking your treats and it doesn’t cost them anything! I still Love it!
    Thanks for your help.

    I NEED to know where you got your dress Jemma!

  16. una lewis says:

    Hello. Can I substitute Cardamom for the Rosemary?

  17. megan tanu says:

    I made these cupcakes and followed the instructions to a T, but my cupcakes came out really dry and didn't rise. Any suggestions?

  18. Jennifer Tippner says:

    So super yummy the dough is not to sweet – just right – I‘m just baking few of these cuties 🐝🍯

    Healthy cake ☺☺

  21. Jessica Guerrero says:

    I know this is an older vid so I doubt you'll see this but do you think I could make regular caramel and then mix it with honey once it's cooled? I'm not the greatest at making caramel and I would hate to burn a bunch of honey bc I'm not experienced enough to know when it's done.

  22. Zoe McKeown says:

    Could you also add honey to normal buttercream or will it not work the same? 😊

  23. Kelly Coleman says:

    These look amazing. You are a better woman than me. If I had one wasp in my House I would run. Let alone five. That would probably induce a panic attack.

  24. Ann-Marie Hunter says:

    Honey caramel can be made without sugar!
    1-1/2 cups honey
    1/2 cup – heavy cream
    2 Tablespoons – butter
    1 teaspoon – vanilla
    1/8 teaspoon – salt

    Directions: Combine honey and cream in heavy saucepan; cook and stir over medium-high heat until mixture reaches 238°F. Stir in butter, vanilla and salt. Cool.

  25. Ann-Marie Hunter says:

    Just one hint for when you're describing bees: the bees you see flying around, collecting nectar and pollen, are all girls! The only bees that are 'he' bees are the drones, who do nothing except mate with the queen (after which they blow up, incidentally)!

  26. Lorraine Miller says:

    I am trying to find the recipe for these Honey, Yogurt & Rosemary Cupcakes but I cannot find it. What am I doing wrong?

  27. claire anderson says:
