with Lavender Rose Elderflower Glaze
Ok, y’all! This cake was a crazy experiment that turned out to be AMAZING! I made it to represent some of my favorite cocktails, which typically include gin, lemon and St-Germain elderflower liqueur. Additionally, I had a bunch of meyer lemons that I had recently purchased and needed to use up. So, of course, I turned to the almighty internet for inspiration.
You know what you get when you Google “Elderflower cake?” Well, apparently you get several copy-cat recipes of the more recent royal wedding cake. Yep, I had no idea that flavor combo was even trending. Seems like I need to update myself on the royals….
Anyway, long story short, and several unwanted royal wedding news sites later, I decided to just go for it and combine my baking knowledge with a few inspirational recipes… and this cake was born!
