|Entry:||WBC Honey Cake
A mini wooden cake stand/hive stand was constructed from a square of hardboard, some lengths of bottom bar for the legs, and frame nails. The hive stand was covered with icing. Pieces of cake were cut to shape, iced, and stacked to form the hive. Varying amounts of black food colouring was added for the roof metal, vent, smoker barrel and hive tool. The smoker bellows were made from honey cake.
Honey Cake Recipe
Melt the butter, honey, and sugar in a pan. Increase the heat and boil for one minute. Leave to cool then stir in the eggs. Gradually add the egg and honey mixture into the flour, mixing to a smooth batter. Pour into a greased, lined tin. Bake for 1 hour at 160OC.
Sift the icing sugar. Warm the honey and glucose in a bowl of warm water. Add all the liquid ingredients into the icing sugar. Mix thoroughly. Dust your hands with cornflour, knead the mixture well, adding more sugar if necessary, to make a stiff paste. Dust the work surface with cornflour and roll out.
