I tried (and became obsessed with) the “Sweet as Honey” ice-cream at Ample Hills last summer. Not only was I having dreams about that ice-cream, but it was also the catalyst for me to want to make honeycomb everything- salad (added crunch, or something, right?!), truffles, cookies, bacon, smoothies (sweetener, maybe?!), cake. You name it, I’ll want to honeycomb it. And that’s exactly what I did for this cake. I made a yellow cake, sweetened to golden perfection with honey, and infused with the essence of orange. Then I whipped up a fluffy cloud of heavenly mascarpone frosting with the faintest hint of springtime (aka elderflower liquor). Half of the frosting got mixed with a little blackberry jam. And then, to finish it off, I sprinkled that entire cake with as much honeycomb as was humanely possible.
Is your sweet tooth looking for more? Then next you should make these filled funfetti donuts.
This is the recipe I used for the Honeycomb.Print
