Honeybee Cake

This is a sweet little cake design that is perfect for a bridal shower or bridesmaids’ luncheon, but could also be made into a larger, tiered wedding cake. This bridesmaids’ luncheon was at Grandfather Golf and Country Club in Linville, NC. The entire event was a honeybee theme, including little jars of honey as favors. The tiny sugar bees have thin gelatin wings lightly brushed with gold dust, and are attached to long strands of angel hair pasta. When placed into the cake, the weight from the bee causes the pasta to bend and sway slightly, so it looks like the bees are “buzzing”. The top of the cake is decorated to resemble honeycomb, and is covered with a thin layer of golden honey.
