  1. Cake had ggod texture but I think there could have been more lavender to provide a more distinct flavor. I made it at work, and customers liked it. I frosted it with lavnder colored frosting and sprinkled little frest blooms on top. Very pretty
  2. I made this cake yesterday for a British expat friend leaving the kingdom after 26 years. Please bear in mind I am reviwing this cake with out tasting it. Whilst the cake was baking I had to steap out for a while and left my domestic maid in charge, Its a possibility she left it too long in the oven cuz it was abit dry and crumbly, it also cracked quite abit. I iced it with your lavender rose icing. I had asked my friend this morning what she though about the cake and her complain was too dry,but she loved the lavender taste and it was just right for her. I will try this cake again for myself, when i do I will review it again
  3. Wow! I've always known you could eat the flowers, but never have tried it. This was awesome, Rita! I didn't have any red food coloring so I just made it plain with the flowers and appeared to be just fine in the presentation department. Wonderful flavor.
  4. Very good simple-to-make cake. I used a little less lavender than called for since I frosted it with lavender icing recipe#65210 and I was worried that the lavender would be overpowering. Shouldn't have -- next time I will use the full amount. Thanks for sharing!
  5. This cake has a delicate hint of lavender. It`s not to be overpowering.
