This recipe makes enough icing and brittle for one loaf, so you can serve one cake and freeze the other. To serve both cakes at the same time, double the quantities for the icing and brittle.
Honey cakes tend to sink a little, but the icing will disguise it. If you prefer, swap the icing and brittle for chocolate ganache sprinkled with a little flaked sea salt.
Bake the loaves to the end of step 2 up to 24 hours in advance, then keep in an airtight tin. Or wrap well and freeze for up to a month. Keep the brittle in a sealed container, somewhere dry, for up to 2 days. Make the icing when ready to serve.
