- 2 tsp baking powder

- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- Pinch of salt

For the Honey Almond Topping:

- 1/2 cup unsalted butter

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar

- 2 tbsp honey

- 1 cup sliced almonds

For the Filling:

- 2 cups heavy cream

- 1/4 cup powdered sugar

- 1 tsp vanilla extract


1. Preheat the Oven:

   - Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a 9-inch round cake pan.

2. Make the Cake Batter:

   - In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

   - Stir in the milk and vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour, baking powder, and salt, mixing until a smooth batter forms.

   - Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly.

3. Prepare the Honey Almond Topping:

   - In a saucepan, melt the butter, sugar, and honey over low heat, stirring until well combined.

   - Stir in the sliced almonds until they are coated with the buttery mixture.

   - Spread the almond topping evenly over the cake batter in the pan.

4. Bake the Cake:

   - Place the cake in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

   - Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

5. Prepare the Filling:

   - In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.

6. Assemble the Bee Sting Cake:

   - Once the cake has cooled, carefully slice it in half horizontally to create two layers.

   - Spread the whipped cream filling over the bottom cake layer and place the top layer over the filling.

7. Serve and Enjoy:

   - Slice the Bee Sting Cake into wedges and serve it chilled or at room temperature.

   - Garnish with extra sliced almonds or a drizzle of honey for an extra touch of sweetness.
