Carve the stack of sandwiches to form a rough beehive shape; using the additional half loaf of sandwiches to pack around it to form a good shape, cutting these sandwiches as required to fit the gaps. Use a little of the cream cheese as a glue to attach these pieces to the sides of the sandwich stack. 4. Put the remaining cream cheese into a bowl and mix until really smooth. Cover the beehive shape completely with cream cheese. 5. Press the Shredded Wheat into the cream cheese to cover the beehive starting at the base and working upwards in neat rows, to create the traditional beehive effect. Leave a gap for the door and press in raisins to add details. 6. Chill to set firmly. 7. Meanwhile make the bees using Nesquik and Golden Nuggets threaded on cocktail sticks, with 2 Shreddies as wings attached with a little cream cheese. Push your bees into the beehive to decorate.
