Honey, honey, how you thrill me, honey, honey!
I have a confession to make, I absolutely love Abba and that I think they are amazing. I mean catchy toons and amazing outfits, what's not to like?
Honey, Honey is also a musical masterpiece that should be treasured always.
I also think honey, in general, is amazing so I made these little cakes that have a huge helping of honey. And bourbon, because why not?
You can even make them while listening to Honey, Honey, wouldn't that be cute.
The honey and bourbon in these guys are combined with several teaspoons of cinnamon and cloves, which makes a sweet, spicy, and incredible cake so delicious that my boss devoured three of these
They are topped with a honey and bourbon cream cheese frosting that is TO. DIE. FOR. Just do a little swirl of frosting on top of the cake, you don't want to overwhelm the cake. Because this cake is goooOOOood.Print
