Duchess Rosa Lavela
The mood is rising - rosy times begin!
The rose - the queen of flowers. Her beauty and her aromas not only pamper her eyes and nose, but also spoils her palate in her exquisite cuisine.
Duchess Rosa Lavela - my cake as a tribute to the flower of love.
At the moment I'm intoxicated with the many roses in my garden. Roses are a true classic and yet always trendy. They bloom in beautiful colors and shapes, please the eye, the nose, the soul and also the palate. Since I wanted to bloom properly with my roses, I have allowed myself to fit in the partner look a really nice rose dress.
So the "working in garden" makes just so much more fun.
A few days ago our very good friend Andreas visited us in the mountains. I wanted to spoil our guest with something special. Recently, I tried to make rose jam and rose musk to preserve this beguiling, fleeting beauty of roses in a special way. Getting up early in the morning and armed with an apron and my favorite magazine, I came across a very interesting recipe for a rose cake while browsing. Perfect - Rose melon cake - something very special for our visitor. The recipe read a bit strange, but I started. Unfortunately, I invested a lot of time in baking - I had to bake the cake mass twice, because neither the mass information nor the baking times had be right. The part with the melon I had even something improved - but long story short - it was the total mess. I was so disappointed and embarrassed myself to the bone. Andreas had to wait all the time for my wonderfully special cake, because I did not finish in time. And then the meltdown: the melon taste had the complete valuable rose aroma and the rose taste over-whitewashed. It just did not taste at all. Together, we rummaged through the magazine again, because I just could not believe that the recipe had voted - neither time nor ingredients. For a long time we had discussed and philosophized about this together. The evening has only saved my garden salad, with my special herbs and alps topping lemon balm and honey marinade. Nevertheless, I was mega-disappointed. I had vowed to rely more on my intuition in the future. At the same time, I had decided to re-create the rose cake in my own way.
I had only waited for a special occasion and, of course, waiting for replenishment of our roses with flowers. This event had come now. It was only a hair's breadth that I managed to sign up for the Austria Food Blog Award, as we were not quite finished with the reponsive design of our site.
We wanted to duly celebrate this: the idea of the own rose cake made of real roses and rosepuree was born. We made it this weekend, finally we can also go online on Facebook and Co. My Freud has spent the weekend with the responsive design of our website and successfully solved this challenge. Now the really rosy times begin. For this reason, I spoiled myself yesterday evening extensively with the aromas of the rose.
It was a stylish break after all the stress. The "Duchess Rosa Lavela" - that's what I called my rose creation - tasted great and in my opinion was completely successful. In any case, I was met with double luck - successful website design and successful new recipe.
Today I present you my "Duchess Rosa Lavela" cake and I am looking forward to your feedback.
