Pre­heat the oven to 175°C. Sift the flour with the bak­ing pow­der and spices in a large bowl. In another bowl com­bine the re­main­ing in­gre­di­ents and beat un­til well com­bined. Add to the dry in­gre­di­ents and mix to­gether. Spoon the mix­ture into a muf­fin tin lined with pa­per cases and bake for 20 min­utes, or un­til springy to the touch and a cake tester comes out clean. Re­move from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.

To make the ic­ing, soften the but­ter and beat in the sifted ic­ing sugar un­til smooth and pale. Add the vanilla ex­tract and com­bine. Ice each cup­cake with a lit­tle of the but­ter ic­ing, and dec­o­rate with pieces of smashed hon­ey­comb.
