It is honey coloured and of jelly constituency. I thought at first it was honey fungus but there’s no sign of any fungi around

I would take the pictures (take a few that are even more close; a few above the area where the substance occurs) and samples to a local agriculture extension service or a local plant nursery to get a diagnosis. The pictures remind me of bacterial canker (also called “gummosis”, “blossom blast”, “dieback”, “spur blight” or “twig blight”) but it is best diagnosed in person.
