“It’s a perfect Russian Honey Cake, my grandmother’s recipe. I know that it’s very time-consuming, requires a lot of hands on work but it worth all your forces. The cake is surprisingly light with pleasant notes of wildflower honey. Overnight chill allows the layer to soften, the flavors to intertwine and the layers to soak in sour, sweet and floral notes of the frosting. I know you’ve worked as a bee, and it’s time to try the Honey Cake! Buuzzzz 🐝”
