theOZer showcases three types of bee feeders.  Only use sugar made from sugar cane, labeled Pure CANE Sugar.  OK.

Where I live there is usually a lot of humidity. I just take bags of sugar open them in the house in the humidity and then when the turn into bricks I put them in an empty box on top of light hives.

Your sugar cakes are an excellent food supplement for your bees.  Thank you for this valued input, your usage of sugar cake.

If I did that I'd be feeding bees from miles around. I rarely feed but when I do I use gallon size Zip Lock bags in a 3" section cut from  hive box and place under the inner lid. I cut a "X" in the bag after laying it down. It is very rare or impossible to lose a bee by getting in the sugar water. They crawl in the opening and clean out the bag after the bag empties to the bottom. The system you have is very nice when providing water though. Looks very nice too.
