Lemon Rose cake–for Tea

I really can’t say that this is a true Tea Time posting… I am cheating a bit!

Yesterday we celebrated our daughter’s birthday with a family dinner…it was  lovely time!

For our dessert, with our tea and coffee, we had this wonderful rose cake…luscious vanilla layers, with delightful Swiss buttercream icing. The cake was baked by our daughter’s friend who is making a name for herself with her baked creations.

We also had a key lime pie, ….very  delicious.
