I haven't used it...hadn't even seen it until now. It's super cute! I would think it would be hard to ice it and not lose the details, however you could always recreate those with fondant or icing. Definitely post a picture of what you make. It really is a cute pan. I do love that Williams Sonoma, lol!

I know. I thought the same thing. I think I am going to cover it in fondant and make the bee's from the fondant as well. I will post a pic soon.

I just did a beehive cake for my son's 1st birthday. Below is the picture. Good luck and let me know if you need any hints.

I am in the middle of making Debbie Brown's busy bee hive cake. I baked it today, and will be carving and covering it tomorrow. I'll let you know if I learn anything that might helpful - and I'll post a pic, too.

Good luck!

Loriana - Did you use the Williams-Sonoma pan or did you carve it out yourself? It is so very cute!!

Thanks so much!

Actually I carved it myself and it didn't take much carving. It was an 8", 6" pan and an aluminum mixing bowl that was about 5" in diameter.

I baked the cakes and baked cake in the mixing bowl, first spraying it with non-stick spray and flowering it. I thinkly buttercreamed and stacked the leveled cakes then refrigerated firm. The only carving necessary one stacking all three was just to get some curves to the edges. Hope that helps!

I made the beehive pan cake.. I used their recipe (not crazy over it).. I with the bees weren't on the side of the cake, but otherwise pretty easy, but hard to cut!!

good luck!
