Do not sub the freeze-dried strawberries because they are the star of this amazing cake. The rose is just enough you can taste the flavor without feeling tipsy. This is a nice light dessert, perfect for a ladies luncheon.
So good. I’ll be making this again! The rose flavor comes thru much more than I thought it would but in a good way. The icing is incredible! Cake was thin. Next time will 1.5 x the recipe and still use 8 in pan. There is ample icing.
Cake is super moist. Flavor is super fresh. I added 1/4tsp almond extract to the cake batter (personal preference). My only complaint is I would have made this in a circle cake pan. It would’ve looked more bakery-gourmet. The square pan made it looks more homemade and I guess rustic.
