Hi

I will be making a honey cake for my cousins upcoming birthday
The original recipe calls for this cake to be made in a loaf pan with no icing/frosting.
Since im going to be making this as a layered cake, im need to figure out what filling frosting im going to use.

I am thinking to use an apple filling with either vanilla or cinnamon SMBC. How does that sound?

Also does anyone have a good apple filling to share?

TIA
Zakia

Orange would be a nice compliment!

i actually thought of orange after i posted this.

the recipe has oj in it and i think the honey i have in the house is orange blossom honey.

so orange buttercream may be the route i go.

thanks for the input!

I was thinking that lemon bc would be nice, along the same lines as orange.

I usually make a green tea cake with honey IMBC, maybe you could do the reverse... honey cake with Matcha IMBC, if you like green tea. It would make the frosting very green though.

any chance you would share your honey cake recipe?
