This sophisticated and toothsome layer cake is infused with the essence of honey and topped with a generous layer of buttercream and a cluster of caramelised almonds. Delish. The recipe is inspired by a cake called 'Aunt Sassy Cake' in an amazing book I got for Christmas called Baked Explorations, Classic American Desserts Reinvented. It's super simple with a limited number of ingredients, which I think is the key to a good cake. When you just need a sweet treat with your afternoon tea, this cake is ideal and the dainty flavour of honey that comes through is rather lovely.
