Shortcuts and Shortcake

Epicurious, Victoria Pearson

I've had Royal Rose's Lavender-Lemon syrup on my bar cart for months, without a floral-infused cocktail in mind. But it came in handy last weekend when I accidentally made a very, very dry vanilla cake and lost all motivation to frost it.

I took a half cup of Royal Rose, mixed in two more tablespoons of lemon juice, and a handful of blueberries. This was spooned over each slice of cake, with a few more berries as garnish.

You can make a better version of what I just very vaguely described using this Epicurious recipe. Skip the second part of the instructions, which calls for a homemade syrup, and follow the steps from above. Here's to mess ups!
