Very solid and expect it will last for years.

This is one of the easiest pans from Nordic Ware I have ever used, aside from the Bundt pans.

I love Nordic Ware pans and I have several of them.

This is one of the easiest pans from Nordic Ware I have ever used, aside from the Bundt pans. The Platinum series is definitely superior, in my humble opinion, to the lighter weight, predecessor line with Teflon.

Definitely grease and flour the pan thoroughly. It inverted completely and with great detail.

As it is constructed by the "sandwich method", with frosting between the two halves, the glaze is needed to hide this area if viewed from the side.

Recipes for cake, frosting, and glaze are included. I always save the labels for these pans as I will never remember the temperature and cook time otherwise.

I would suggest purchasing the little sugar honey bees as well. King Arthur has the bees and ladybugs as well at present.

I purchased this pan for my daughter's bee themed birthday party. This cake pan is wonderful. It makes it easy to create a cake that looks professional without spending hours on it. The pan is sturdy but not too heavy. The cake inverts very well if you grease and flour the pan properly - a few times I had the bees come out a little flaky if I used too much butter or not enough flour, so I started using Baker's Joy spray with it and have had no problems with the details coming out perfectly. The recipe that comes with the cake tastes like a pound cake and it's very good. It creates more detail on the cake than a box mix does. Although, I found that using the recipe on the label makes 2 halves that do not quite bake up to fill the hives all the way - about 1/2 cup more batter on each half would be good. So I made two batches of the cake batter and filled the pan a little more then used the rest to make small bundt cakes. When I use a box mix I like to use a butter cake mix. I will use two boxes and fill the hive halves and have leftovers for cupcakes. One box mix is not enough to fill both halves! I did not use the recipe on the label for the frosting in the middle, but it is a traditional buttercream that I have since used for other cakes (it's tasty!). I used a canned lemon frosting for convenience and the taste went well with the cake and glaze. The glaze recipe is easy but you have to make it thick so it will not run down the cake and pool too much on the sides. It looks best when it is very thick. I didn't make the royal icing bees with the recipe that came on the label, although it seemed simple enough. Instead I piped candy melt bees onto waxed paper and then attached them with more melts.

The only problem I had was making sure to balance the pan well on the oven rack.

Please let it be known that the cake pictured here is not one baked from the Nordicware pan that this Amazon listing is for. Rather, it appears to be one baked from the highly-sought, out-of-production bee hive cake pan by Martha Stewart. The M. Stewart pan has more of a "rope-like" detail to the hive as pictured here. The Nordicware beehive has smoother ribbing - not as detailed and includes about 3 bees as a part of the cake mold design. The correct photo for the Nordicware beehive pan can be viewed on a number of other Amazon listings for the same product.

The pan itself is adorable and easy to use. The recipe that came with it however is a different story....yuck! I found another recipe online that was delicious! If they could improve the recipe on that comes with the pan, it would be 5 star!

This is a nice, sturdy pan without weighing 10 pounds like the older Nordic Ware sometimes did. I recommend the cake recipe included with the pan; it was not overly sweet, and the touch of honey was discernible, making the cake something a bit unusual. I don't recommend the icing they suggest for drizzling over the top. It is white, and next time I will experiment a bit and see if I can't come up with something a bit "drippier" and a bit more like the color of honey. I didn't make the bees, but the instructions appeared to be easy to follow. Note: If you decide to make a cake other than the one suggested, I highly recommend that it be a pound cake or some kind of dense cake; I don't think a regular cake would stand up to the handling, or if you could even get it out of the pan.

Heavy mold. Used it at least 10 times already. I used box mix. Two boxes of cake mix because it need about one more cup to really fill up but one will do just fine. Frosting for middle. Each cake feeds 10. Slice down from side then cut piece in half. I handmade the bees from the recipe guide enclosed or you can purchase baby sugar bees on line. Loved by all. Impressive.

I must admit- I have a huge longing for fancy cake pans. I mostly try to resist, since i don;'t have space for the collection I'd like... but we're beekeepers, and so this one was a MUST.

I'm really pleased with it. I make honey cakes in it, and they turn out GREAT- the detail shows up, and it's so cute! I usually make a honey glaze for them, too.

The shaping was very well-designed. Nothing seemed to want to stick (and i can have problems with that in a simple 8-inch round pan!). I don't put the 2 halves together with icing or whatever- I think they work better as a basic honey cake with a glaze that shows off the detialing.

I love this cake pan and am very glad i bought it!

(And I am now eyeing NordicWare's pull-apart "honeycomb" pan...)
