Dave and I own and operate "Bernadine's Stillman Inn" in Galena IL since 2000. A prime spot to visit if you enjoy History and the Gentle Arts.
Need a quick and beautiful cake for an event? Here's an idea our guests love.
Lavender Frosted Cake
Simply make two 8" round white cakes from a box mix (I know, but it is quicker)
Level them before stacking (important thing to do and you can find a leveler anywhere they have cake making supplies. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)
Make your favorite frosting and add 2 teaspoons Lavender Extract (We get our extracts at www.kingarthurflour.com)
And add a touch of purple food coloring and mix well
Spread between layers and just on the top of the cake
Sprinkle with sparkly sprinkles and there you have it!
This weekend our guests will be delighting in our fabulous disappearing oatmeal cookies and a Pineapple upside down cake!
Plan your next visit to Bernadine's Stillman Inn in hitoric Galena and mention this Lavender Frosted Cake and receive a complimentary bottle of wine with your two night stay!
Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
