    What? Rosewater drizzle cake is light and elegant, but very simple to make. It’s topped with pretty icing, pistachios and edible rose petals for a real treat.

    Why? This cake has real class and now that rose flavour is back in fashion, it will make a delicious twist on lemon drizzle for your afternoon tea.
