I was inspired by a few things for this one:
1. the incredible salted honey pies my friend Val makes at her bakery (constellation collective in collingswood, nj)
2. the equally as incredible honey lavendar ice cream my friend Jake makes (windy brow farm in newton, nj)
3. how much I love peaches
So with all of that I came up with a yellow cake that had peaches between the layers covered with salted honey buttercream and lavender used as sprinkles!
I think I will use the honey buttercream will all of the my cakes now because it's a winner!
For this I used peaches from our orchard that froze but I think fresh peaches will be even better.

Honey Buttercream Recipe:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tbsp milk

1 stick of softened butter
1/8-1/4 tsp salt
Peaches peeled and sliced and strained for at least one hour so your cake doesn't get soggy.
Dried Lavender removed from stems and sprinkled on top!
