Honey and Spice Buttercream

I found this recipe on a site that of course I can not remember for the life of me. It pairs wonderfully with a Pumpkin Pecan cake that I just posted as well.


  • • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • • 1/2 cup dark honey
  • • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • • 1 3/4 cups butter, room temperature
  • • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. 1. Combine gelatin and 2 tablespoons water and let set for at least 10 minutes.
    2. Bring honey and sugar + 2 tablespoons water to a boil in a small saucepan.
    3. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes.
    4. Remove from heat and let cool 3 minutes.
    5. Stir 2 tablespoons of honey mixture into gelatin mixture until dissolved.
    6. Whisk remaining honey syrup along with salt and cinnamon into this mixture.
    7. Strain into a medium size bowl and beat, using an electric mixer on high speed until double in volume and completely cool, about 10 minutes.
    8. Add butter, 2 tablespoons at a time, while continuously beating.
    9. Stir in vanilla and use immediately of chill.
    10. Rewhip before spreading on cake or bread.
