How To Make Rosemary Lavender Cake

Naked cakes have been popping up all over the place in the past year, and it turns out, I am pretty obsessed with them. In theory, you would think a naked cake would look sloppy or unkempt, because by definition, it is an unfinished cake. But, for some reason, naked cakes actually turn out looking pretty beautiful and elegant. This is especially true when they are paired with natural elements like colorful flowers or simple greenery.

So, we decided to try it out for ourselves. This is our Vanilla Vanilla Cake recipe filled with a delicious Honey Buttercream and decorated with a little Lavender and Rosemary. All we did to make the honey buttercream was add a little honey to the original vanilla buttercream recipe until it tasted the way we wanted it to. It was super easy and turned out really well!

What better way to welcome the first day of Spring?!

Ingredients
  

CAKE

  • 5 large egg whites at room temperature
  • 1 cup whole milk at room temperature
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups cake flour, sifted
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar **If you do not have cake flour just lying around you can use all purpose flour. Cake flour is obviously better…but this works too. 1 cup of cake flour = 1 cup of all purpose flour – 2 TBS.
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature and cut into cubes
  • 3-4 springs of fresh rosemary (optional)
  • 3-4 sprigs of fresh lavender (optional)
  • 3 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped

BUTTERCREAM

  • 1 lb (2 cups) room temperature butter
  • 5 egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lavender extract
  • water
  • candy thermometer

Instructions
 

For the cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare three 8" cake pans with pam and parchment.
  • In a medium bowl combine the egg whites chopped rosemary and vanilla set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together on low speed for 30 seconds.
  • Add the butter, and mix on a low speed until just combined.
  • Add milk and mix until just combined. Increase to medium speed and mix for 1-2 minutes.
  • Scrape the sides of the bowl and begin to add the egg mixture in 2 separate batches, beat on medium speed until it is just combined.
  • Divide the batter between the three cake pans.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let cool on racks until cooled completely.

For the buttercream:

  • In a small sauce pan put 3/4 cup of sugar. Cover the sugar with a little bit of water until the sugar looks like wet sand. Cook on a stove top over high heat until it reaches 248 degrees (you will need a candy thermometer).
  • While the sugar is cooking, whip eggs whites in a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment at a high speed until they reach soft peaks.
  • Once the egg whites reach soft peaks add the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and mix on a high speed until the egg whites reach stiff peaks. You can keep mixing the egg whites at a high speed until the sugar is done cooking.
  • Once the sugar reaches 248 degrees, place the mixer on high speed and stream sugar into egg white mixture. Mix on a high speed for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, add the room temperature butter and mix on a high speed for 5-10 minutes until the butter is fully combined and the mixture resembles buttercream.
  • Add honey, vanilla and lavender and mix until just combined.

Assembly

  • Once cakes are cool, take them out of the pans, and place one layer onto a cake plate. Using an offset spatula, spread 1 cup of frosting on the cake.
  • Turn the second layer upside down (so the bottom is face up) and gently place it on top of the first layer. Spread another cup of frosting on the cake.
  • Turn the third layer upside down and gently place in on top of the second layer.
  • Spread a generous amount of frosting on the top of the cake. Spread the frosting to the edge of the cake and then start to work your way down the sides.
  • Using a bench scraper or an offset spatula, scrape some of the frosting off the sides of the cake so you can see the cake layers.
  • Using twine or string, tie together a couple of springs of rosemary and lavender and place on top of the cake.

Notes

* Serves 10-14 people depending on how big you cut your cake slices.
*Makes 1 Cake

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

It makes pricing quick and easy.

You never have to stress about undercharging again.

Basically, it’s the best thing EVER.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.
