Earl Grey and Honey Ombre Drip Cake

23

This cake incorporates my favourite tea - Earl Grey and the perfect flavour that goes well with Earl Grey is honey! The recipe has an Earl Grey Sponge Cake, soaked in Earl Grey Syrup which is then filled with honey buttercream. Finally, the cake is decorated with a blue ombre buttercream, with white chocolate ganache drips and homemade honeycomb.
