Vanilla Lavender Cake
Yes, I did this. Vanilla lavender cake.
Isn’t that what everyone who joins Weight Watchers does on their first week?!
Bake a big ol’ cake to tempt yourself with? Nice. I’m winning at this weight loss effort!
I’ve currently got the last quarter of the cake wrapped securely in foil so I can’t see it.
You know — “out of sight, out of mind.”
It’s not working . . .
I’m finding it hard to focus on anything but that cake.
But can you blame me?! Look at the texture! I love what buttermilk does to cake.
So, can we talk about frosting?
It’s obvious from the photo — I’m all about the cake.
Frosting? I can take it or leave it (mostly, I leave it!).
I have to admit, though, a little bit of the buttercream frosting adds a really nice kick of sweet to this!
And the lavender part of this vanilla lavender cake? Subtle. That’s intentional.
You need to be careful with lavender. Too much is . . . just not good!
But, hey, if you love lavender, then have at it! You go ahead and drizzle extra lavender simple syrup all over those delectable layers!
