Here’s the cake I did last weekend for an anniversary party. Each tier is a different cake flavor frosted smooth in buttercream. Once the buttercream was set and well chilled I spread on a shiny clear sugar glaze to give it the “sticky” look of real honeycomb. Then I cut wide bands of fondant to the fit the circumfrence and height of each tier. I used a small hexagon cutter to cut out the design and then wrapped the fondant around the tiers using Jessica Harris’s wax paper transfer method. Check out her class on Craftsy.com if you’d like to learn more this. I spread a little more sugar glaze over the fondant for some texture. The bees are made out of dark modeling chocolate with melted white chocolate drizzled on top. The wings are made from gumpaste. A piped buttercream border finished off the look. Love, love, love this one!
