Lilac Cake

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!
