Thanks unknowndisorder, wonder if you could leave the almond essenceout of it as I would like the honey to be the main flavour if possible.Guess only way to find out is trail and error.

Beat butter and honey together Add icing sugar until you have a spreading consistency. Spread over cake.

I've made this several times and always enjoyed it.
I guess you could leave out the walnuts
