Blackberry Lime Cake – tender cake infused with lime zest, frosted with blackberry buttercream, topped with fresh blackberries and edible flowers.
Spring is officially here. While our local weather has been up, down and everywhere in between, my heart is ready for birds chirping, green buds of new growth on the trees and blooms of color. Mother Nature might be slow to cooperate, but this is the time of year to embrace color, in all of its pastel glory. From Easter and Mother’s Day to baby and bridal showers, there’s ample opportunity to dive straight into the lush florals and gorgeous hues that springtime has to offer. And today’s Blackberry Lime Cake does not disappoint.
This is cake is a celebration of everything spring. Shades of violet sing as sweetened blackberries meet up with subtle notes of lime, created only with nature’s best. Not only are we decorating with gorgeous edible flowers but we’re tinting the frosting with the pigments naturally found in fresh blackberries. The result is a subtle lavender hue that looks like it came from a bottle but really came from the earth’s bounty.
