This tea cake is elegant and very simple to make. I used a basic pound cake recipe and added the rose petals, rose water and food coloring. The purist could use beet juice. This recipe makes quite a small cake but it certainly is enough considering how rich it is. You can reduce the amount of sugar in the cake to 1/2 cup and add a pink icing flavored with rose water.
