    muffin207's Note:

    This is one of my favourite cakes--one my mom would often makes. Bee sting cakes are popular in South Africa. Its a sponge cake which has a custard filling. Also this one is special because it has a almond topping as well. This cake takes some time but is well worth the effort.
