The flavor: Lavender.
Icing: Honey Buttercream. Using Tea honey from the Savannah Bee Company.
Lavender can be a overpowering flavor. And NO you can't just snip lavender out of your yard. There's culinary lavender that was used and there's also lavender extract. I opted for the culinary buds instead.
Cake was also colored lavender as well. Unfortunately I think most of the coloring baked out of the cake.. But I'm not entirely sure. Food coloring and cake batter don't mix when you're trying for a light color..
After the piping was done, a piece of parchment paper was cut to slightly smaller the thickness of the ribbon. That way it was behind the ribbon and the ribbon wouldn't stick into the icing-- and the icing wouldn't bleed thru the ribbon. Win Win.
What did you accomplish this weekend?
