This Earl Grey & Limoncello Cake is a feast not only for the eyes, but also the soul. Brushed with an infused syrup, sprinkled with nuts and sugar, this tea cake makes for an unforgettable dessert.
This cake deserves an award. Is that…pretentious of me to say?
I don’t care because I am so in love with it.
I have always been a fan of Earl Grey cookies, I figured why not make a cake? It is elegant and just plain luscious.
With a sweet, citrusy pungent note of Limoncello, this cake is more than just beautiful. It is decadent.
You know you are foodie when you see a bouquet of roses and want to turn them into a dessert.
After the cake was finished cooling, we made a syrup infused with Earl Grey tea and Limoncello, then brushed it all over the cake.
With any remaining syrup leftover, I brushed the flowers and leaves then sprinkled them with sugar. They dried and crystallized beautifully.
Still, this cake needed something more…
Slivered almonds and a sprinkling of icing sugar finished this stunning dessert.
All that was needed was some tea…and if so desired, a dollop of whipped cream.
