Bee Sting Cake



The Cake Slice is baking from a new book! "World Class Cakes" by Roger Pizey, is this seasons baking book! 


I have been so anxious to start baking from this book! As soon as it came in the mail this summer I had my son sift through the beautiful pages of delicious desserts and pick his Birthday Cake! He chose this delicious Bee Sting Cake! A little surprised he didn't op for a thick frosted cake. He's growing up, and his pallet is getting more sophisticated I suppose. 


And to be quite honest not sure what drew him to this cake. Perhaps it was his curiosity, I have never made a Bee Sting cake before. I've had it, but never had I brought it home to introduce to the family. 


The cake was simple to make, and loved the result! The filling was light and heavenly, the topping was absolutely delicious! The whole family enjoyed the cake, my son especially!

That does look wonderful. I wanted to make this but my husband decided he'd like an apple cake. I'll bookmark it for another occasion though.

This is a cake I would love to have on my birthday too. I think our new book is going to be a lot of fun to bake from over the next year.

What a special birthday cake! It looks like your topping is just perfect and that is sometimes hard to do. Often it gets too dark. Happy Birthday to your son Anabel.

This looks lovely and light Anabel, I can imagine that almond topping is especially crunchy and delicious.

That looks really good. I wish my husband ate cake so I could make it more often. The topping on your cake looks so good too. I'm excited for this new cookbook too.
