Lilac Cake

filed under: Cakes on July 20, 2011

UPDATE: Here is a tutorial for how I made this Lilac Cake!


This is just a simple little cake meant to brighten your day.


Just a few purple flowers I hope will make you smile.


A plate served with three pieces.

Don’t judge.

Just enjoy.


I used my basic white cake recipe.  I whipped up a batch of buttercream, added some purple and piped away.

Hope your day is full of plates with three pieces of cake!
