BUBBLE WRAP HONEYCOMB CAKE RECIPE BY TASTY
This cake is the bee's knees! We used boxed cake mix to keep things simple, but feel free to get fancy by making your own. When melting the candy, make sure you're on medium power. Microwaving on high power will cause the candy to seize. For a finishing touch, drizzle on extra honey and top with our homemade honeycomb. You and your guests won't be able to stop buzzin' about it!

- Make the honey buttercream frosting: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the honey and beat to incorporate. Add the powdered sugar and a pinch of salt and beat on low until mostly combined. Increase the mixer speed to high and beat for 3-5 minutes more, until the buttercream is light and fluffy. If the frosting feels soft, you can also refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes so it stiffens slightly.
- Assemble the cake: Place a cardboard cake round on a cake turntable and dab a small amount of frosting in the center of the cardboard round. Center one yellow cake layer over the dab of frosting, then evenly spread about ½ cup of buttercream on top with an offset spatula. Top with a layer of chocolate cake, then another ½ cup of frosting. Repeat with the remaining cake layers and frosting. After adding the final layer, lightly frost the entire cake to create a thin crumb coat.
- Refrigerate the cake for 15 minutes.
- Cover the chilled cake with the remaining frosting in an even layer. Return the cake to the refrigerator for 15 minutes more, to allow the frosting to stiffen.
- Take the cake out of the refrigerator. With the bubbles facing outward so they don't get frosting on them, wrap the sheet of bubble wrap around the perimeter of the cake. Trim the wrap to form a collar that fits loosely around the cake and comes about 2 inches over the top edge. Remove the bubble wrap. Keep the cake in the refrigerator until you're ready to finish the assembly.
- Make the yellow candy honeycomb: Place the candy melts in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power (not on high, which will cause the candy to seize) in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the candy is fully melted and smooth.
- Place the bubble wrap bubble-side up on a flat surface. Pour most of the melted candy along the bottom two-thirds of the bubble wrap. Working quickly, use an offset spatula to spread the candy over the bubble wrap, leaving the top third empty. Once the bottom two-thirds are evenly covered, use a spatula to spread the candy in a wave pattern along the top edge. Let sit for 5 minutes. While you wait, remove the cake from the refrigerator and position it near the bubble wrap.
- After 5 minutes, test the bubble wrap by lifting up a corner. If it looks like it is beginning to harden and has a sheen to it but is still pliable, it is ready to be used. If the candy is still very loose and dripping, let sit for another 1-3 minutes, checking every minute.
- Once the candy has set, pick it up by the top corners and quickly wrap the side with the candy around the cake. Press it onto the cake so it sticks. Once attached, try to slowly peel one corner of bubble wrap off. It it sticks, let sit for 1-3 minutes, checking every minute, until ready to peel. If it begins to peel, continue slowly peeling off the bubble wrap until entirely removed. If the candy cracks while you are peeling off the bubble wrap, either remelt and repeat the process, or break it into large shards to decorate the outside of the cake. Refrigerate until serving time.
- Immediately before serving, top the cake with homemade honeycomb pieces and crushed honeycomb. Drizzle honey around the edges of the yellow candy honeycomb.
- Carefully slice the cake. Drizzle each piece with more honey before serving.
HONEY BEE CAKE
- Take whatever you need out of the refrigerator so that all ingredients can come to room temperature, and while that's happening, melt the chocolate from the cake part of the ingredients list in a good-sized bowl, either in the microwave or suspended over a pan of simmering water. Set aside to cool slightly.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and butter and line a 9-inch springform tin.
- Beat together the sugar and soft butter until airy and creamy, and then add the honey.
- Add 1 of the eggs, beating it in with a tablespoon of the flour, and then the other egg with another tablespoon of flour. Fold in the melted chocolate, and then the rest of the flour and baking soda. Add the cocoa pushed through a tea strainer to ensure you have no lumps, and last of all, beat in the boiling water. Mix everything well to make a smooth batter and pour into the prepared tin. Cook for up to 1 1/2 hours, though check the cake after 45 minutes and if it is getting too dark, cover the top lightly with aluminium foil and keep checking every 15 minutes.
- Let the cake cool completely in the tin on a rack.
- To make the glaze, bring the water and honey to a boil in a saucepan, then turn off the heat and add the finely chopped chocolate, swirling it around to melt in the hot liquid. Leave it for a few minutes, then whisk together. Add the sugar through a sieve and whisk again until smooth.
- Choose your plate or stand, and cut out 4 strips of baking paper and form a square outline on the plate. This is so that when you sit the cake on and ice it, the icing will not run out all over the plate. Unclip the tin and set the thoroughly cooled cake on the prepared plate. Pour the glaze over the cold honey bee cake; it might dribble a bit down the edges, but don't worry too much about that. The glaze stays tacky for ages (this is what gives it its lovely melting gooiness) so ice in time for the glaze to harden a little, say at least an hour before you want to serve it. Keep the pan of glaze, (don't wash it up), as you will need it to make the stripes on the bees.
- Divide the marzipan into 6 even pieces and shape them into fat, sausage-like bees' bodies, slightly tapered at the ends.
- Using a wooden skewer, paint stripes with the sticky honey glaze left in the pan from icing the cake. About 3 stripes look best, and then very carefully attach the flaked almonds at an angle to make the bees' wings, 2 on each one. They might snap as you dig them into the marzipan bodies, so have some spare. I'm afraid to admit, I also like to give them eyes by dipping the point of the skewer in the glaze and thence on the bees: they look more loveable with an expression, which is somehow what the eyes give them, but then this is where the Disney effect comes in. If a more imperial dignity is required, forgo the dotting of the eyes and present this as your Napoleonic Chocolate Cake.

- Get the oven hot and ready! Preheat oven to Gas Mark 5 or 200c (180c for an electric fan oven) We'll be baking on the middle shelf, the cake will rise so make sure you have a little room above.
- Prepare the cake tin and ingredients. Grease the bottom of the cake tin with a little butter and line with a round of baking paper. This will give you the best chance of your cake coming out clean and easy.
- Create the topping. Add the butter and honey into your saucepan and heat gently until melted, stirring occasionally. Once the butter has melted add the salt, vanilla extract, lemon zest and juice and stir together gently.
- Let's start the cake batter. In the large bowl cream the butter and sugar together until it's soft and fluffy, this is easiest with an electric mixer but if you are working by hand, just make sure the butter is nice and soft before starting and give it plenty of elbow grease!
- Prepare and add the dry ingredients. In the smaller mixing bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt. Gradually start to add small amounts of this flour mixture alternately with the milk to the wet mixture in the large bowl.
- Transfer to the cake tin. Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake tin. Try and get it as even as possible and use your spatula to smooth the top.
- Into the oven! Place the cake tin on a baking sheet and cook on the middle shelf for about 30-40 minutes, until a skewer or toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
- Remove and cool. When the cake is done, let cool in the tin on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes, then out of the tin to finish cooling completely. There will be plenty of cake for 8 chunky sized slices.
