UPDATE: Here is a tutorial for how I made this Lilac Cake! https://iambaker.net/lilac-cake-tutorial/


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!

  1. I thought I commented yesterday, but I guess I didn’t! What I *did* do is go out and buy those tips today so that I can replicate this the next time I make cupcakes. Thanks for your tips!

  2. This is just about the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen! Lilacs are my favorite flowers, and I would love this to be my next birthday cake
