Vanilla & Rose Cream Bundt Cake

There is just something about a fluffy, moist vanilla Bundt cake served with a hot cup of tea. Bundt cakes make the ultimate centrepiece for any celebration.

A Bundt cake is known for its unique shape and most Bundt cakes are simple with just a drizzle of icing sugar or a glaze, but by now you know BKD isn’t simple and loves to add that little extra touch.

To give a little BKD touch I added a rose whipped cream and garnished with strawberries, edibles flowers and gold leaf.

It makes a simple but beautiful cake for your Eid table.
