'The Marie Antoinette Cake' - Lemon Syrup Cake with Rose Water Icing

With apologies for the slow return to cake making and lack of updates, I have finally come up with a new cake of the week. The idea came from seeing an unopened bottle of rosewater in the cupboard and picturing Marie Antoinette having morning tea with her girlfriends in her Versailles palace rose gardens. This pretty cake with pale pink rosewater icing would not look out of place in such a scene. It's a sour cream lemon syrup cake topped with rosey sweetness and raspberries. I think it would be perfect eaten with cream off vintage china and a pot of jasmine tea.

butter
sugar
organic eggs

sour cream
