Chocolate and Rose Bundt Cake


Long weekends often inspire me to try something different, whether it’s getting out and exploring a new part of the city, or in this case, baking my first bundt cake. For a little twist on the traditional, I chose to make a chocolate cake with rose buttercream frosting. I used by go-to chocolate cake (double the recipe for cake) and frosting (skip the milk) recipes, and added just a drop of rose water into the frosting. I’d recommend using a straw to dab just a bit, as the flavor can be wonderful when used in moderation and terribly floral and cloying when overused. I was pretty happy with the results, but the boy’s nieces and nephew were the final taste testers and boy did they approve.
