Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Beat together eggs and sugar for 10 minutes on high or until the mixture is thick and fluffy. Sift in the flour folding it gently from the bottom up just until combined with no dry flour remaining.
Place it on a stove stirring apricot mixture constantly until sugar dissolves. As soon as it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and let it slowly boil/simmer for 30 minutes stirring from time to time (that prevents apricots from settling to the bottom of the saucepan and burning). Then remove from heat and let it cool.
Combine ¼ cup sugar and 3 tsp. of agar-agar (or gelatine).
Transfer apricot puree back into the same saucepan. Stir in agar-agar (or gelatine) mixture and bring it into a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for a minute. Remove from heat and let it cool to warm before pouring onto the cake. Stir the jello apricot puree once in a while to prevent outer layer from thickening.
Drizzle chocolate over apricot, insert two almond slivers (that represents bee wings). Refrigerate bees for 5 minutes for the chocolate to harden.
Then cut off excess chocolate around each bee and place them all onto the cake. Refrigerate the cake for a couple of hours before serving.
