a very rosy birthday cake


Rosewater and banana cream and a flower crown, oh my.

Floral crowns tend to top noggins during only the most special occasions: birthdays, weddings and music festivals, for instance. Given that teatime is one of the most special of all occasions though (in our very humble, treat-eating opinion), this rosewater and banana cream cake deserves a flowery tiara all of its own.

Want to know what's so great about this cake? How about a great big helping of banana whipped cream, splodged between two fluffy slabs of sponge and covered in a thick layer of Swiss meringue? Yep, it's a doozy alright. Fire up the oven and find the full recipe here.
