Preheat the oven to 355°F (180°C). Grease and line the base and sides of three 7 inch (18 cm) cake tins.
In a large bowl whisk together: flour, cocoa, soda, baking powder, espresso powder, salt, spices and sugar.
In a small pot melt butter. Set aside.
In a separate bowl combine all the wet ingredients: eggs, buttermilk, milk, vanilla extract and honey.
Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients until no lumps remain. Add melted butter. Whisk just until combined.
Split the batter equally between the 3 tins. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean, at 355°F (180°C).
Take out of the oven and allow to cool completely on a wire rack, before assembling the cake.
Make the frosting:
In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, cream heavy cream on a high mixer speed until light and fluffy (approx. 6-8 minutes).
Cut the cream cheese into cubes.
Add the cream cheese, a few cubes at a time, until you've added all of the cream cheese. Mix on medium speed for 1 minute until blended.
Scrape down sides of the bowl, add sugar, salt and cinnamon and mix for 1 more minute. Split the frosting into 3: 2 smaller parts and 1 larger.
Assemble the cake:
Place the first cake on a plate or a cake stand. Top with the first, smaller serving of frosting.
Then, layer with the second and third cake with a serving of frosting in between.
Finish off with the third, biggest serving of the frosting and garnish with washed and drained cranberries or your fruit of choice.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
