Today’s cake is the ultimate for honey lovers.  The tender honey infused cake is delicious all by itself, straight out of the oven, with its buttery undertones and mellow sweetness.  If you can resist the wafts of honey in the air, you’ll be rewarded when this cake pairs up with the tangy-sweet honey cream cheese frosting.  Then comes the dramatic drip of liquid sunshine – the glistening honey butterscotch glaze, gently poured over the top and allowed to cascade down the sides.  Sprinkle with a light dusting of sanding sugar and serve with an extra drizzle of honey butterscotch.
