almond pound cake, mostly because I had all the ingredients and it's quick.
When I was done I had a simple cake, dusted with sugar on a white cake board.
Now I know the cake is delicious, but the visual was blah to say the least. I decided to punch things up a bit with flowers, but I decided maybe it wasn't such a good idea after all. Quite a few types of flowers are edible (pansies, roses and violets come to mind), but all I have right now are rhododendrons and they are not such a good thing to eat. So I nixed the idea.
Instead I decided to float them in a little plastic, cobalt blue bowl I picked up the other day.
The contrast of the flowers with the bowl was quite stunning and I just had to share.
