Everything’s coming up roses with this beautiful cake. We take four layers of moist, tender lemon cake, fill the top and bottom layers with vanilla cream cheese frosting and bright raspberry jam, and fill the middle layers with a thin layer of tart lemon jam. Then we frost the whole lovely thing with fluffy yellow rose petals made of a soft buttercream. It’s a sweet ending to a special meal, or to share with mom on her big day.

Use & Care

Receiving Instructions

  • The cake ships frozen with dry ice, which may have evaporated during shipment. This is normal. Please take care not to touch any remaining dry ice with bare hands. Upon receipt, remove the cake from the bakery box and store in the freezer for up to 3 months, or defrost in the refrigerator overnight and keep for up to 7 days.

To Serve

  • The cake is best enjoyed at room temperature. Remove the plastic from the cake while it is still frozen. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Once thawed, allow the cake to come to room temperature, approximately 4 hours before serving. To serve, run a large knife under hot water and dry with a towel before every slice. Store leftover cake in an airtight container, where it will keep up to 3 days refrigerated.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is delicious !!! I bought this cake for my graduation dinner. It came delivered on dry ice nice and cool. And the rose petals looked as pretty as the picture ! I kept it in my freezer for about 3 days then, left it in my fridge one day before I needed it. When I cut into it is was soft, and so tasty ! My guest couldn't stop complimenting it. 100% recommend this cake ✓

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really wanted to like it I was very excited to order this cake, especially after reading the reviews. I received it fast, followed the directions exactly. I wanted it to be perfect. Well, I wanted to like it, but it turned out to be dense and disgusting. I was very disappointed and would be apprehensive about ordering any other cakes online. Just have peace of mind and go to a bakery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant Cake! We enjoyed this cake for my birthday-- it was delicious! It is not a large cake but my family of 5 enjoyed 1/4 of it at one setting. (kids age 6,8, 10) It is wedding cake quality with delicious lemon flavoring/zest. The raspberry addition is perfect! This cake has a lot of icing but I think it's necessary to make the beautiful rose design. Think it might be a pound cake since the cake is dense & delicious! It would be perfect for Easter, small birthday get togethers. REALLY pretty & tasty! Will order again for Easter or my birthday!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it, but... I was so looking forward to serving this cake for a special event, but when I opened the box, my heart sank. I stayed home to make sure I was there when the delivery person dropped it off, so I opened it right after they rang my doorbell. Sadly, the gorgeous frosting was damaged; melted and squished in some places. Plus there were some fragments of something black embedded in the frosting on one side. The reason I bought this cake is that it is beautiful online. I followed the directions and we used the parts of it that weren't so squished. I have to say that I still wasn't impressed. The lemon cake was just ok, not great. There is much more frosting than cake. I'm so sad about this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Sweet Show Stopper! I ordered this cake for a springtime garden party specifically because of its good reviews and beautiful roses. It arrived in perfect condition and I kept it frozen until two days before the party. When I brought the cake was a real "Ah!" and "Wow!" moment for guests. This cake was as moist and delicious as it was beautiful. Love the refreshing lemon raspberry flavors. Some guests declared it to be one of the most delicious cakes they'd ever had. I would definitely order this again.
