This lush Italian dessert cake makes a bold and unusual statement with the addition of fresh lavender syrup. It is an elegant Dinner Party Dessert Cake which marries fruit & herbs together in a fresh & imaginative way! One of my "Stand By and Never Fails to Please" dinner party desserts!! Great served with just the simple addition of some creme fraiche. If you are using dried lavender flowers, please remember that they are more pungent than fresh flowers, so use sparingly! NOTE: I would be very wary of using too much lavender - it is quite a pervasive flavour, the essence of this recipe is that delicate flavours marry well with each other & are not too overpowering!
