We are totally making use of our giant lilac this year! We've had blooms around the house and shared some with Mom. Then we decided to make a cake with the last of the gorgeous flowers.
I lade a simple white cake and made a plain sugar and butter icing.
I added a handful of fresh blooms with all the green pulled off to the batter.
They looked so pretty in there!
I added some orange blossom water to the icing too. made the cake even more flowery. I think next time I'll try using my no icing sugar icing. This butter icing was way too sweet.
Lily enjoyed the lilacs this year too!
So very purple!
