      Took this to a co-workers house for a dessert for the football game. Everyone enjoyed this cake. Added an extra teaspoon honey though. Only change made. One of the better cakes I have had in a while, as this was nice and moist and fluffy. We finished this at lunch today at work . Made for Recipe Swap #46.

      This is a really tasty cake. The honey and whisky flavors are subtle, but definitely present, and it makes for a very nice, tender cake. I found the icing just a bit thin. I would probably add a little more powdered (icing) sugar next time.
