Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line a 9-inch round cake pan with parchment paper. Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cocoa until combined.

Step 3

With either a standing or a handheld mixer, beat eggs, butter, vegetable oil and rose water together until thoroughly combined. Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir until combined.

Step 4

Pour batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Place cake on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before frosting.

Step 5

While the cake is cooling, make the buttercream icing. Add softened butter to the bowl of a standing or handheld mixer. Whip for 3-5 minutes. Add confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract, salt and cardamom, if using. Mix on low speed until all of the confectioners' sugar is incorporated. Whip another 2-3 minutes. Add the heavy cream and mix for another minute.

Step 6

Frost the cooled cake with buttercream icing.

Step 7

Decorate the frosted cake with edible flowers. Slice and serve with tea or coffee. Enjoy!
