Honey Cake

Honey is a very traditional food during Rosh Hashanah.  Its sweetness symbolizes the wish for a happy, sweet life in the upcoming year. It is common to have a Rosh Hashanah feast end with a beautiful, moist honey cake.  Challah and apple slices are also dipped into honey and served along with the honey cake.
