Vertical Honey cake.

Jump to recipe

Honey cake!!! It sounds like music to my ears! This cake is the one that I can never get enough of, and frankly, anyone I know thinks the same. I grew up eating this cake often and my love for this cake grew even stronger with years. I think this cake is truly like no other, so soft and easy to devour, with a beautiful hint of honey, with a right amount of frosting that hugs each layer of the cake and makes it soft and fluffy, with a wonderful aroma and pleasant aftertaste. This cake is rich in flavor but its not overly sweet and sticky. Honey cake tastes even better with time, juts like a good wine, all you have to do is wait. And if you wait, you will get a better experience, believe my personal knowledge, I’ve made and eaten this cake bazillion times.

I’ve already posted my go to recipe before, and I will post it below to make it easier. This time I’ve used the same recipe, but I’ve assembled the cake different and turned it into a vertical cake.

A few tips that I want to share about the vertical cake assembly .

  1. For vertical assembly, bake each cake layer on a large cookie sheet, cut each sheet into 2 same strips.

2. For vertical cake assembly, I suggest to bake each cake layer for no longer than 5 minutes, it will be softer.

3. Make sure that all strips of cake are the same height.

4. Frost all strips and leave them frosted on a countertop for at least 30 minutes to soften. it would be easier to bend them and shape the cake.

5. If using berries, I suggest using firmer berries( raspberry, cranberry, strawberry) If berries are large, slice them into smaller pieces.

6. My favorite frosting is a simple sour cream frosting. I suggest using a sour cream with a fat content of at least 18%. if you don’t have sour cream, follow the recipe below and make a cream cheese frosting. I provide recipes for both types of frosting, both work really well!

Regardless of how you will decide to assemble this cake or which type of frosting you will choose, this cake will impress you in so many ways. This Honey cake is a labor of love but its worth all the efforts, you will make your taste buds sing!
