Birds & the bees? Perfect Pair? It would make for an awesome display! I attempted making the “bees” cupcake: a honey cake filled with lemon curd. Drizzled with honey and topped with a vanilla buttercream. I had originally tried making a honey buttercream, and wasn’t a fan- so I threw it out , made a vanilla buttercream, and drizzle the cupcake with honey. Do you see it dripping down the side? Yum.
The cake is moist. It’s delicious. However it isn’t very honey-ish. This wouldn’t make a very good “bee” cupcake if you can’t taste the darn honey! Will possibly attempt a new honey cupcake with more honey? Am still brainstorming new perfect pair combos….
