I bought a deck of these cool cards this week. The cards makers and you tube reviewers have no clue about honey bees, but the cards are still really neat.

Are there any members here that are members of the Ontario Beekeepers Association?
I would like to become a member and have access to the Ontario Bee Journal but am in the USA.
Is it possible for me to become a member?

Welcome to WWB,
Those sugar cakes like CBT's recipe,  were pressed in pie pans.

Thanks,
I mostly use hard candy but have used sugar cakes when I don’t have time to make candy.
The recipes that I use are as follows:

HONEY BEE WINTER CANDY

5 lbs Sugar
2 cups water
1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
Splash of Honey Bee Healthy (If Desired)

Boil Sugar, Water and Vinegar stirring constantly until 242- 250 degrees
Let cool for a few minutes before adding the HBH
Stir until it starts to turn opaque/ white.
Pour into molds and let it set-up overnight
Cut before it gets too hard
Fills one half sheet pan
Feeds one hive or two Nucs


Here is the Sugar Brick Recipe

Sugar Bricks

4 lb. Sugar
1/3 cup of water or Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix well until the consistency is like “wet sand”. Place into mold and press well (I use a rolling pin).
Place into oven on lowest setting (approximately 170- 180 degrees) for 30 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the sugar mix in the oven to cool and dry overnight.
