Dogwood Cake for a Luncheon

Many flower trees bloom in the spring including dogwood.  These beautiful large and flat flowers, when blooming, look as though they are suspended in the air.


According to, “the Dogwood flower means endurance, for durability through all seasons.”  This cake was made for a luncheon meeting of a few good friends.  I think the meaning of the flower was the perfect symbol for the friendships that have formed among them.


I created a new cake flavor for this Dogwood Cake, a green tea sponge cake with vanilla pastry cream, covered with green tea chocolate ganache.  This is a wonderful cake for green tea lovers.
