If you joined us for 2021 and have a recipe you were hoping to make for your hive – check out the info below! We love baking with honey – and we love sharing our creations with you!  (instead of sugar, I used 1/3 cup honey)  (instead of 1 1/4 cu sugar, I used 3/4 C honey and 1/4 C of sugar)  (instead of Santa pan, I used the Jubilee pan.  Instead of sugar in the cake, I used 1/3 C honey)
