I made a beehive cake for my son's preschool bake sale. I didn't have much time so I thought I'd choose a cake that I could put together quickly.
I thought I'd easily find instructions, but although I found lots of pictures of very cute beehive cakes, I didn't find anything that took me through making one step by step.
So I came up with my own approach that I'll share here. Note that I didn't need a huge cake on this occasion so I made a half beehive cake. You can make a taller cake this way (which can look more impressive) with only half the amount of cake.
You can easily adapt the approach to make a full beehive cake.
