Buzzing around in the Cakery!
I was asked to make a cake recently for a man who was retiring and who’s hobby was beekeeping.
I was really excited about making this cake and wanted to make the hive out of cake and make it as realistic as possible. I stacked yummy sponge cake which were filled and covered in Madagascan vanilla buttercream, then I set about panelling the cake using a wood effect to give the most realistic effect possible .
To Finish off the cake I baked mini vanilla cupcakes again covered in Vanilla buttercream and then decorated them as bees.
I added a few daisy’s and a little honeycomb to the cake board with the cupcake bees busily buzzing around them, I was really pleased with the end result.
