LISA’S TIP – Always keep the honey cakes tightly wrapped up in foli to keep moist. The honey cakes will stay fresh for 5-6 days. The texture should be squidgy and dense at the same time. It’s a festival tradition to have honey cake during the Jewish New Year as it symbolizes the wish for a sweet and good new year. Also, you can freeze the cake or cakes in advance so that you’re all prepared for the big day! Take the cakes out of the freezer several hours before serving. Something that I love to do is keep the golden syrup tins and use as table decorations (see in the photo) to store flowers or candles.
