BLACK TEA CAKE WITH HONEY FROSTING

It's been two weeks of my collaboration with 24 Mantra. This week I experimented with a number of interesting organic ingredients, my favourite being the Assam tea and the organic honey. Let me tell you a bit about the organic Himalayan Multi flower Honey, which I absolutely loved working with. I fell in love with it's colour, taste and aroma. It is perfect for baking and I'm excited to use it for more organic experiments that I do. 

I decided make this cake in two small tins and alternate the layers with my best ever chocolate cake
