Honey-Glazed Beehive Cake and Pretty Bundt Cakes

Casting moulds help you bake pretty impressive cakes. Store a few models for when you entertain.

Cakes baked inside a silicone mould are easier to remove but it seems the more detailed patterns are still made in metal. With proper preparation and careful handling, you will be able to create a crisp surface.

Honey-Glazed Beehive Birthday Cake

My friend Nat baked and decorated the honey-glazed beehive cake for her mother’s birthday. She also crafted the bees with almond paste. Look how gorgeous it is! Nat is very talented; she always surprised me with all her know-how.

Nat baked the Honey-Glazed Beehive Cake recipe that was on the cover of June 2008 Martha Stewart Living magazine. You will need the Beehive Cake Pan available at Williams-Sonoma. Canadians can order the pan by calling any of the 6 Canadians Williams-Sonoma stores.

Bundt Cake Design Ideas

The Beehive Cake Pan is produced by Nordic Ware, a brand renowned for the Bundt cakes. They made pretty cool patterned pans. A Bundt cake is my exception to the rule. I prefer a non stick pan because it is so important to get accurate lines defining the pattern.

Margo Murdock Murphy of Stockton, California for her Chocolate Cabernet Flavors di ‘vine’ Wine Cake at the 2006 Bundts Across America contest. Her cake looks so tasty. You can bake her non cake mix base recipe created especially for the Martha Stewart Show.

Carry around your cake in style with the Bundt Cake Keeper. Its cover twists and locks to a base plate. The clear dome means you can admire it without affecting its freshness.

I may have seen these bundt cake pans at Les Touilleurs last winter. Looking at the finished products, I feel I need to do some shopping.
