It is traditional to eat apples dipped in honey on Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) and honeycake is also a tradition. These two cakes combine the traditions. Both the "apple" and "honeypot" are honeycakes filled with chocolate ganache and covered in fondant. The "honey" is piping gel. I've learned a lot since these two cakes!

how did you get the apple variating green and red?

itsacake Says... 10 years ago

The fondant itself was tinted green. Then I mixed both green and red "paint" by adding wilton color to a couple of Tablespoons of vodka with a little powdered sugar to give it a bit of body. I used the red and green paints with a little brush and also blotted with a paper towel in some spots until the apple looked something like the real one I had as a model.
