matcha & rose dome cake

matcha cake 
makes an 18 cm cake

60 g butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tsp heaping matcha
pinch of salt
¾ cup buttermilk

cream the butter and sugar until pale and soft
add eggs, one at a time, mixing well
sift the flour with baking powder, matcha and salt, add into the butter
add the buttermilk, mix until the batter in smooth
bake around 30 min in 180C

3 cakes
1.5 x this recipe with rose essence to taste & pink food colouring
fresh flowers

cut the tops off the cakes to make them even, then stack them and trim the cake towers into a shape of a dome
un-stack and set aside
spread roughly  ¼ of the buttercream over the bottom cake, and another ¼ over the middle cake, stack them together
put the top cake and do a buttercream crumb coat for the entire construction (very thin layer of buttercream, then refrigerate for at least 1 hour)
ice the cake with the rest of the buttercream, smoothing it out as much as possible
decorate with flowers as desired - here I placed some around the bottom and created a crown of sorts near the top of the cake
