And a candied rose petal for garnish, if you’re into it.

How to Make It

Totally simple.

  1. Wang in your sugar and butter together and cream them together, which basically means just keep mushing them into each other with a spoon until there’s no more grains and it’s like cream.
  2. Add yer tiny egg and whisk it up with your creamy stuff until you’ve got something like mushy scrabbled egg.
  3. Pop in the flour and mix that in until the whole thing is smooth and there’s no flour hanging around.
  4. Splash in your rose water and mix it in.
  5. Do the same with your cochineal.
  6. Do it with the glitter.
  7. Scoop it into a little cake thing… patty? Whatever they’re called:
mix it like this
mix it like this

Then bang it in the oven at 180C for 15 minutes.

Once it’s out and cool, stick a rose petal on the top:

Look at the twee fucking cake you just made. You should be ashamed of yourself.
