Sorry, saw your post this morning when I woke up and didn't get to it til I got home from work and finished a cake. BUT I just made the honey cinnamon buttercream - I just adapted my usual BC recipe - so I can give you a recipe now haha. To answer your first question - I maybe added like 1 Tbsp extra flour, but that's it - the batter was really quite thick (I was thinking I did something wrong!), so when I added the 3 c. grated apples and mixed it up it all came together well and was more 'cake batter-like'.
The honey cinnamon buttercream is as follows:
250 g butter (1 c.)
4 c. icing sugar
4 Tbsp. honey - I liked it having a more pronounced honey taste as the cake has cinnamon too, so adjust to your taste
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
~2-3 Tbsp. milk
Pretty easy - just cream butter, add in icing sugar and beat until well blended, then mix in the honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. Then gradually add in the milk, mixing until well blended - you may have to adjust quantity of milk depending on the consistency. Hope you like it - it tastes fantastic with the apple cinnamon cake
