Whip up this Earl Grey Cake with Vanilla Bean Frosting for a stunning and delicious dessert perfect for a tea party or weeknight dessert.
This Earl Grey Cake with Vanilla Bean Frosting is a simple and elegant addition to your next party. I love the look of this cake, don’t you? It’s a little rustic and super easy to whip up. You can see the spongey cake and specks of vanilla bean in the frosting. The frosting to cake ratio is perfect- not too sweet and overly done.
I created this cake to celebrate Alice Through the Looking Glass. The beauty of a cake that is unfrosted on the sides (naked cake) is perfect accompaniment for Alice. She is unpretentious and her natural curiosity is a wonder in itself. That’s what makes her Alice and sets her apart. The same can be said for this gorgeous cake- we see it’s flaws, and therein lies the beauty.
My family was invited to a media screening of Alice Through the Looking Glass as part of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration this year. The movie is amazing and I think, it’s even better than the first. Johnny Depp is the perfect actor to play the Mad Hatter. Sacha Baron Cohen’s Father Time character is unbelievable and of course Mia Wasikowska, Anne Hathaway, & Helena Bonham Carter are just as good as they were in the first movie. I promise…no spoilers….but you will come away with a new love for Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts.
