Great British Bake off is over...........sob.
For some reason I missed the other series and people kept mentioning it to me. I snuggled down to watch the first episode and was absolutely hooked. I had a pen a paper at the ready to write down tips and recipe ideas, loved it! I was always on the edge of my seat and just like Whatkatebaked, the boy always knew he was cooking and being quiet the whole episode!
As I watched the last episode with super excitement but also a bit of sadness I followed them along by making some Toblerone cupcakes.
I looked around and found a lot of chocolate cakes with Toblerone but I wanted to try something different. The key ingredients to Toblerone are almond and honey. So I wanted to make a cake with ground almond and a honey icing.

I substituted the chocolate for Toblerone - It's a bit tricky to grate but you can do it :)
250g icing sugar
225g butter ( I know it seems like a lot but it taste yummy, I promise)
2 tablespoons honey
Cream together the icing sugar and butter with an electric whisk.
Whisk in the honey, whisk for 5 minutes until beautifully fluffy!
I also think this cake would go really well with chocolate butter cream as the cake isn't that chocolatey.
I took this in to work for my lovely team. We are going through an "uncertain" time at work at the moment and I hope it cheered them all up.
