Rose cake

I am officially now a lady of leisure. I have had an afternoon nap every day for the past week, my feet are grass stained from running around barefoot and today I found myself at a loose end for the first time in forever. So, I made a cake for the boys in the office. Yesterday I made some lemon and poppyseed muffins as a special request for Matt but they somehow turned out to be extraordinarily inedible so I had to redeem myself today. I found an old recipe on a scrap from a magazine for a rose, cardamon and walnut cake, and I have to say that I really outdid myself. It was so yummy. Check it out:

Those are rose petals from the garden on top. I think the boys were pretty impressed. Only a little bit came home again.
