Bakeware manufacturers are getting more and more creative with their pan designs, which means that we have many more options for cake design – even if our cake-decorating skills are a bit rudimentary. The trend at the moment is to design cakes that are baked in two pieces and are then “glued” together with an edible frosting or syrup, resulting in a beautiful, shaped cake with next-to-no work at all.
This Beehive Bundt cake is one of the newest I’ve seen and, for a spring and summer cake design, it is just adorable. Several of the bees are baked onto the cake, but Williams-Sonoma sells candy bees that can be added as decorative accents.
The only thing to keep in mind with cakes like these is that it is important to grease the pan well to ensure a clean release.
