Honey cake baking was a handicraft of Central European roots and long traditions in Debrecen from the early 18th century. To shape the honey paste, the artisans of Debrecen used distinctive honey cake molds whose carving was part of the trade. The old molds tell stories of the design culture and carving techniques of long-gone centuries. The most popular one was the round disk shape, yet a lot of hearts, dolls and cavalrymen were also baked. Later, the same basic forms were given colourful decorations made with special techniques. Various types of honey paste are known.
The oldest type of paste is the traditional “tokni” paste used for the honey cakes of Debrecen. It is a particular material made only in Debrecen – it is demanding to process, and well distinguishable from the other pastes. Still today, one can taste this sweet and special delicacy at a number of events of the city.
