Honey comb cake:
Things you need for the decoration:
Bubble Wrap (this will create the comb effect)
Sugar Bees Sugar Bees Amazon
Apricot Jello mix Apricot Jello Mix
The Cream filling:
1 vegan heavy cream
1/2 a Vanilla pudding powder
You could get a store bought icing for that as well.
Honey Cake Base:
Directions: This cake is great even after 2 or so days in the fridge so feel free to have fun with your kiddo a few days before Rosh Hashanna. Prepare the base honey cake, recipe is in my previous blog or if you would like to use a boxed one that’s fine as well. (Whole foods has some tasty ones). Once your cake is baked and cooled slice it in half horizontally. Let cool longer while you prepare the filling.
For the non dairy version, beat vegan heavy cream with the instant vanilla pudding mix until thick. Fill the top of one side of the cake with the cream and put the other half on top. Now delicately (this part is the funnest for the kids!) cover the cake with the cream. Once the cake is smoothly covered cut the bubble wrap the same size as the cake pan. Now is the exciting part for the kiddos! have them press the bubble wrap on the top of the cake to create a comb illusion FUN! (don’t forget to wash the wrap…don’t use soap it will get in the bubbles. ). Now place cake with bubble wrap in the freezer for at least three hours. Once the cream is hard and frozen you will easily be able to remove the wrap.
Now for the “honey” effect: mix the jello powder with warm water and let it cool. Once at room temperature delicately have your kiddo pour it on the cake…let it drip on the sides to create a nicer effect. Place your sugar bees et voila c’est fini you are done!
