Acclaimed pastry chef and best-selling cookbook author Zoe Francois has a fabulous blog that features wonderful desserts and baking recipes. Her site is one of my favorites as everything is not only delicious but beautiful. Yesterday she posted the most adorable beehive cake with little marzipan bees floating around the cake. It’s beautiful and precious… oh.. and the cake? It’s a brown-butter banana cake with honey buttercream…. swoon!
As a lover (and keeper) of honeybees and a firm believer in natural foods like honey…. I loved this cake. Zoe states it’s a “tribute to both the elegance and ingenuity of honeybees.” Unlike many other baking sites, Zoe takes the time to post step-by-step instructions that make recreating her recipes a snap. Your beehive cake will has a good chance of looking just like Zoe’s cake. To see how she did it, please visit her original post by clicking this link.
