Apple and Lavender Cake x

 I have to make a cake every week for knitting club ......

 This week I picked some primroses and violets from The Byes and crystallized them......

 To decorate my lavender and apple ring cake x

 And very yummy it was too..........
Very spring like x

  2. hi julie...i always use a basic vicky sponge mixture and add whatever flavourings....this week i added a head of lavender finely chopped and two dessert apples chopped....i then made the lavender icing but that would be quite hard to recreate as i thought chopping lavender seeds and using them would be too pungent ..like biting on a pepper corn ...so i made the glace icing with my crab apple and lavender jelly x hope thats helped x x

    1. Thank you I'll try that. I make ginger cake the same way by adding 1 to 2 teaspoons ground ginger , and sandwich it together with butter cream icing with finely chopped glace ginger which I washed boiling water and well drained.

  3. I think I forgot to say todays cakes tasted as good as it looked hx


i love hearing from other bloggers and try to answer every comment x
