Layers of Cake: Ivoire Lavender

cake2

Baked this for a 21st Birthday Party for a friend of mine. Along with the 30 customised decorated Cookie Lollipop sticks, this was a tough task to tackle. Even more so given complexity of the cake, a delightful cake infused with the floral notes of lavender and an acquired richness from the melted white chocolate added into the batter. It didn't help that i met with several 'accidents' along the way like baking my first batch of cake and absent mindedly forgetting to add the sugar in!!! the end result, a deflated and severely dense cake. *groanz*... there goes all my ingredients down the drain. Arghs..

subsequently, everything worked out fine. And nibbling on the scraps of cake while leveling.. i must say that i absolutely love the cake. Moist and awfully aromatic! Guess this will be my entry to
Layers of Cake by Laurie of Quirky Cupcake. But I'll have to wait till i get a cross sectional shot of a slice of cake before the posting! *toodles*

Erin: thanks for dropping by and for your comments of course! I'm just glad everyone enjoyed it.

didally: I'll get the photos of the cross section up asap. Though I think it got a little messy during the cake cutting ceremony. So Don't expect too much! *smilez*
