  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 115 g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1,5 package Baking powder
  • 4.5 cups flour


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 230 g butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon peel grated


  • 100-150 g whipped cream cold
  • blue food coloring
  • glitter powder optional
  • cookies in shell shape
  • fondant red and white
  • decorative sprinkles optional


Bake the dough bases

  • Put the sugar in a saucepan with the honey and the butter.
  • Heat the mixture over medium heat until it caramelizes.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and baking powder.
  • Add the honey mixture in a thin stream.
  • Allow the honey-butter-egg mixture to cool slightly.
  • Add the flour and mix everything together to form a dough.
  • Divide the dough into 5 portions.
  • Roll out each piece slightly, then place on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 175-180°C for 15 minutes each.
  • Trim the dough bottoms, cutting away the edges of each.
  • Mix the edges of the dough into crumbs in a food processor.

Prepare the cream

  • Pour the milk into a saucepan.
  • Heat over medium heat, but do not bring to a boil.
  • Add the flour to the milk in batches and whisk thoroughly to combine.
  • Remove the milk mixture from the heat and continue to stir; it should thicken slightly.
  • In another bowl, mix together the butter and one cup of sugar until the cream has taken on a light color.
  • Stir in the lemon zest.
  • Stir the cooled milk mixture into the whisked butter cream on low speed of the mixer.
  • Put the finished cream in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Assemble the cake
  • Place the first pastry case on a serving plate.
  • Spread the cream evenly on it.
  • Proceed in the same way with the remaining pastry bases.
  • Spread the streusel topping on top of the cake, leaving one corner free.
  • Let the honey cake sit in the refrigerator overnight.


  • Tint cold whipped cream blue with a little food coloring.
  • Spread the cream on the corner of the cake left empty as "sea water".
  • If desired, dust the sea water with some glitter powder.
  • Sprinkle with sugar sprinkles.
  • Top with seashell cookies.
  • Form a swim ring from the red and white fondant.
  • Decorate with cocktail umbrellas and serve with birthday candles.
