Hi everyone,

I have to make a beehive cake in two weeks time. I have Debbie Brown's book which has how to make one. But I was wondering whether anyone has made using a tiffin tin or the wonder mould?

Aany help on this is much appreciated.

TIA! icon_smile.gif

Thank you for your reply. That is the sort of shape I want. I wonder whether I can carve those lines, if I bake the cake in wonder mould. icon_rolleyes.gif

I think so. I'm thinking it would be easier with round concentric pans and just round out the corners and fill the gaps with butter cream. btw this is where i got my pan
I cut out the bees with a knife and filled with butter cream. good luck
