My son Sam weighs all of 60 pounds soaking wet, so it was a surprise when he got stuck in the Caterpillar bulldozer at a construction site in our neighborhood the other night. As all kids are trained these days, Sam, very responsibly, upon hopping up on the seat, secured the seatbelt … quite tightly-so tightly, in fact, that when he realized the bulldozer wouldn't move and was ready to hop down, he was stuck.

I suggested we wait a week to see if he lost any weight, then he could slip out-kind of like when Pooh got stuck in Rabbit's doorway after eating all his honey. Sam wasn't keen on that idea. We eventually got the seatbelt undone, but all this talk of Pooh and Rabbit made me want some honey.

So here is a recipe that uses honey inside and out. Inside, honey is whipped up with cream cheese. Outside, it's drizzled on top after the cake is baked. It seems particularly fitting for spring, as it tastes especially good served with spring berries.
