Rosemary & Grapefruit

So sorry for the delay on this thing. Sometimes I try really hard to get things posted, but I just love my time with Jonah and get caught up with his cuteness. I think that's pretty excusable! I'll update you on him soon! He's adorable and I can talk about him all day, so I'll keep it for a separate post.

Anyhow, Recently I was inspired by a yummy looking cocktail, a rosemary grapefruit spritzer. It seemed like a good inspiration for a cake and I had been wanting to make a cake for myself. And sometimes when I want to try new combos, I rather test it out on myself first just in case it sucks. haha!

I've been using this chocolate recipe, and i really like it. I did a simple vanilla buttercream with a touch of grapefruit juice and rosemary simple syrup I made. I thought it was a yummy combo with the chocolate too! 

And of course to decorate I used fresh grapefruit and rosemary. The bright colors made the cake look so fresh. And I did the "naked" buttercream way of covering the cake. Honestly this cake was super easy to make. And it made the perfect cake for coffee and wine when I had guests over this past weekend!
