I have volunteered to bake a cake for our Easter Celebration, I like the look of this and it's simplicity, plus, I've never had MS give me a bad recipe.

Both the cake and frosting contain honey and I was wondering which flavor of honey might do well. I was thinking orange blossom honey might bring a nice citrus flavor to it and cut through the sweetness, any others I should consider?



thanks,

if I wanted a citrus flavor I would not rely on the honey -- i would rub some lemon/lime/orange zest in sugar to release the oil and add that in the cake batter -- so I think any light honey will do -- she suggests raw honey which would be quite nice -- and I guess it is a bit darker though -- you would get a bit of flavor bang from a darker honey like a buckwheat though -- and like I said in another post today -- a grand marnier splash (simple syrup flavored w/gm brushed onto baked layers) is not out of the question for a lovely orange direction -- zest is optional for that one --
