Cake Slice Bakers March 2013 : Honey Bee Cake

Hello to anyone who is still out there, it's been a LONG time, over 6 months and creeping up on 7. We won't get into that today, instead I want to share with you this simple delicious cake that I made on Monday, we'll put it this way I am surprised there is anything left this morning.
 
The cake its self is super simple and easy to make. It should have nuts of some kind (almonds in the book) but as my kids and hubby are not a fan of nuts I skipped them because we all know that I don't need to eat a whole cake on my own.


 
I served mine with a bit of cool whip - shhhh - it wasn't really necessary as it was sweet enough.


If it wasn't for the fact that my boys are all expecting a bunny cake for Easter I would make this cake instead. 
 
xoxo

  8. This cake really was a winner, wasn't it? I love your dusting of powdered sugar, and of course that dollop of cream definitely adds to the yummy experience.
