I don’t know if it’s because I’m a child of the 70′s and have fond memories of tea and cakes in my great auntie’s garden but I love fondant fancies!
With friends coming for lunch who had taste for cake with rosemary, I indulged in some nostalgic baking. These are made from lemon cake with lemon and rosemary drizzle, rosemary buttercream and ‘quick fondant’ topped with fresh rosemary flowers from the garden.
Rosemary may seem a surprising addition to cake but actually, its contribution was subtle in this (high on the scale of lemon) cake. Next time I’ll include it in the cake itself.
I haven’t time to add the recipe now but let me know if you’d like me to!
