    While not a true buttercream icing, this was good enough to scrape the bowl clean after icing a two layer sweet potato cake.

    Buttercream Honey Icing

    1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter
    1/3 C. honey
    4 C. powdered sugar
    1 T. milk

    Place all in a mixing bowl and mix until creamy smooth. Can add more milk for a creamier, easier to spread icing. Delicious.

    I have my honey separated out into 3 colors and find that I need to reduce the honey amount on the darker batch. Anybody else experience the same?

    I don't harvest any dark, or late, honey so I don't have any problem. I would agree that you would want to reduce if using the darker honey.

    I shared this recipe with my local Bee Club this spring. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. Our club is always looking for ways to utilize honey.

    Oh boy! I think any flavor that you would pair honey with would be delicious. Banana cake, spice cake, pumpkin, iced oatmeal cookies...

    Just reading the recipe makes my mouth water. Perhaps it's better for my cholesterol level to stick with just reading it and let:grin: my mind "Taste" that delicious icing.
