    1. Thanks so much Lisa! I’m so delighted to hear that. I’m trying to get my email server properly sorted so it will be a possibility to subscribe to my posts 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to leave me some feedback x

  2. I’m going to take a leap of faith and attempt to make this cake for my wife’s 60th birthday. Never having done this before it really is a BIG leap!!
    Wish me luck and watch this space……

  3. thank you! thank you! thank you! all the way from East Africa 🙂 i have had so much fun making this.
    have tried to upload it but sadly i couldn’t 🙁

  4. How did you get the wafer paper wings to stick to the bees? I’ll be making a similar cake next week!

    1. Hi Jamie! You can use either piping gel or if you don’t have that, just a teeny bit of water or edible glue. A little goes a LONG way. Have fun 🙂 I’d love to see your finished cake too x

  5. Hi! Love this cake! I am planning on making it for a birthday party on Boxing Day. How far in advance do you think I could make this? I am worried about the chocolate going soft next to the buttercream but ideally need to make it a couple of days in advance of the party it will be for. I have never attached chocolate to a cake like this before so wondered if it would attach to fondant more securely. Thank you!

    1. Hey Chirsty, thanks so much 🙂 you can make it a few days in advance, just make sure the cake issue in a cool place so as not to melt the chocolate. The chocolate sitting next to the buttercream will not make it go soft 💕 I think you’d have a much harder time attaching the chocolate to the fondant xx

  6. Oh my… i’m currently looking for ideas for a novelty cake for my mum’s 70th birthday and found your cake on pinter estate. This honeycomb & bee cake is AMAZING !!! I love it.. I think before my mum’s birthday on November 2020 I will have to have a practice of this cake. Seriously considering doing this… thankyou for brilliant explanat ion on how to accomplish it.

    1. Thanks so much Kirsty! Let me know how you get on with it or if you need any help! It’s really fun to make 🥰❤️😍

  7. I made this cake for my daughters second birthday/ she adores bees! It was a total success and the instructions were really easy to follow. Absolutely loved it! Thank you!!

  8. My daughter and I are planning on making this cake for my four-year-old granddaughter’s birthday party next week. I don’t seem to have luck at all when it comes to melting candy melts. I have tried every method possible and it never comes out the right consistency I am concerned that I won’t be able to get the chocolate to spread on the bubble wrap. Help!Do

    1. Hi Dorie! Candy melts can be quite temperamental. Have you tried using a bit of white fat in to your candle melts? That will help thin it out. White chocolate will melt really easily for this project as well and easier to work with 🙂 x

  9. How hard is it to cut this cake with the chocolate wrapped all the way around?

    Do I add anything to the melted chocolate like crisco

    1. Hey! Because it’s white chocolate it’s already quite soft so no definitely don’t add anything to it as it will take ages to set. You can use a hot dry knife to slice if you’re worried about the chocolate breaking when cut x

  10. What did you use to color your chocolate? I’ve been told regular gel colors will make it seize, but I swear I’ve seen others do that. I’m making my cake this week and an debating between using white chocolate or candy melts.

    1. Hey Dana! So that was just white chocolate I used, no colouring. It was probably the Lidl brand, that was always my go to and when melted was quite yellow. (my cakes are vegan now so I don’t use regular white chocolate anymore) Gel colour does tend to seize. I don’t know what wizardry they’re using when people add colour without it seizing. You could always heat up a small amount of milk or cream and add the colour to that and then add to the chocolate 🙂 x
