Weekend Delicacies

Weekends for me are times of treats, delicacies and favorites.

This weekend's delicacies included sprigs of fresh lavender, and baking and then partaking of a Lemon Berry Coconut Cake.

And then I saw this lovely piece at Restoration Hardware and FELL IN LOVE. Isn't it lovely?

Thanks guys! Yep, I made the cake. The filling is a layer of berry jam, and then a layer of lemon buttercream. It was delish!

That cake sounds yummy and the smell of fresh lavendar can't be beat! :)

Kristin said...

that coconut cake left me drooling! you always find the most delicious looking treats!

for me? ooh, I ate well on mother's day! A huge mug of chai tea latte and a goat cheese & spinach quiche for breakfast, a crazy-rich oreo cookie-filled rice krispie treat from The Crispery for breakfast dessert, and bites of a delicious german chocolate cake and carrot cake later on in the afternoon. YUM!!

I think our sweet-tooths make us kindred spirits, no?
