... insert your new queen into the queenlees hive body after you have destrored natural cells ...
The bees will take a new queen if they are queenless overnight.

I would recommend this process, except I would make sure I keep her in the cage, and let the little girls chew through the candy. Most bees will take a new queen if they are queenless overnight, but not all of them. I don't know about you, but I hate seeing $20 get stung to death.
