Preheat the oven to 350º F, but make sure that you place a rack in the center. Use a light coating of vegetable oil in a pan and keep it aside. Take a large bowl and place the oil, cake mix, sour cream, and eggs in it. Blend all these ingredients on a low speed with an electric mixer. Then, increase the speed to a medium setting ensuring that the ingredients blend well. Once the batter becomes thick, pour it into the pan prepared before. Smooth the batter properly with the help of a rubber spatula.

Now, add all the filling ingredients and put honey on top of the batter. You can even sprinkle some pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon if required. Blend these ingredients slightly. Place this pan in the oven. Bake till it turns a shade of golden brown for a total of 40 minutes. Once done, remove from pan and allow it to cool on the rack. It's time to prepare the glaze. Place the sugar, vanilla, and milk in a small mixing bowl. Blend these ingredients well and pour it over the hot cake. Allow it to spread evenly. Let it cool down completely. Once it cools, cut and serve.
