Honey-Glazed Beehive Cake

Tonight at sundown marks the beginning of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. On Rosh Hashana, one of the many traditions is to dip apples and round challah in honey as we ask for a sweet New Year. Honey is used for many desserts during Rosh Hashana and I have been eyeing this Martha Stewart honey-glazed beehive cake for some time now. I am going to attempt to make this today for my family. This cake has yellow and black marzipan bumblebees to add extra charm. You can follow instructions on how to make marizpan bees here by simply adhering tinted marzipan to sliced almonds.

If you are not feeling so ambitious, you can order marzipan bumblebees from Marzipan World, a great source for a variety of shaped marzipan.

I hope this honey cake will be symbolic of the upcoming sweet year!

    We made the bees for a baby shower that we did and they turned out fabulous! Haven't tried the actual cake though :) http://www.ilovelolliblog.com/2009/06/b-is-for-baby-shower/
