What The Buzz Is About

I'm late to this month's Cake Slice Baker's party, but I was waiting to bake this month's cake when I actually needed it! Mom is here helping out with Elise for a few days and last night we had a mini birthday celebration for her.

The Honey Bee Cake was yummy, though I omitted the almonds on top. The honey glaze sort of crunched up and was delicious, we ate ours with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. It's a simple cake to make and could be dressed up in many ways. Now I see what the buzz was about with this cake and my fellow bakers!

Recipe is available in Julie Richardson's cookbook, Vintage Cakes.

oh I love whipped cream and strawberries! Those two help add so much more to a cake!! Sounds delicious-- wonder what it would taste like to add some chocolate chips in there somewhere?

That looks so tasty. Strawberry shortcakei s a fave of mine and that looks pretty similar!

I'm a huge fan of cake but not frosting. Does that make me weird?

Grace Phua said...

Awesome! Together with cream and strawberries, it definitely goes one level up :)

I agree, I bet this cake is just as awesome without the nuts!

Fun to be able to share it for a special occasion!
