Honey Cake


A friend invited me to a Rosh Hashanah dinner tomorrow night. I made a honey cake and added some marzipan bees. That is supposed to be a beehive. I am a better cook than I am an artist! I used this recipe, which is supposed to be good–we’ll see!

Update: It was pretty good–moist, which was nice–but not the best spice cake ever. I think maybe I’d have put some chopped apples in it, another time, to give it a bit more oomph. I don’t eat that many sweets, and I have to confess that my favorite part was the homemade applesauce (from our little tree which produced a bumper crop this year) that I served on the side. But I think I will continue to save my calories for chocolate cake! The only kind of cake worth falling off the wagon for, IMHO. But the marzipan bees were very tasty. Everybody ate his or her bee, with relish.
