I made this icing as is. The lavender and rose were in perfect harmony with each other.I tinted it a lovely lavender colour.

This smells so good and is delicious on top of lavender pound cake recipe#63384. I skipped the rose water (couldn't find it) and used regular tap water with delicious results. Thanks for sharing!
