Serves 18+ Cupcakes | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/2 cup of honey
1 cup of butter, softened but still cool
2 large eggs

Beat eggs until smooth and fluffy.

Bring honey to a boil in a small sauce pan.

Then slowly add the eggs into the boiling honey while constantly whisking the honey-egg mixture quickly.

When done, move to an electric stand mixer and whip at high speed for about 5-7 minutes- it should be thick and cool.

Cream butter in a bowl until light and fluffy.

Beat in honey mixture until throughly mixed.

If it looks curdled, just keep beating it, and possibly add in a bit of sifted powdered sugar. It may also require some refrigeration.

A very sweet, very tasty frosting! It's a little tricky sometimes, but it's well worth the effort! You can use any kind of honey you like, we keep some on hand from Seven Sisters Honey ( )
