Chocolate cake flavored with lavender lemon simple syrup and layered with lavender-colored frosting.

As prepared by Hungry Happenings,

Naked cakes are all the rage right now, and it's easy to see why they’re so popular. They’re super easy to make, yet look really stunning.

If you’re not a fan of fussing with frosting the outside of a cake, this method is for you. You simply frost between the cake layers and leave them!

This cake has layers of lavender-colored frosting in between decadent triple chocolate cake. To enhance the flavor and match the color, the cake layers are infused with lavender lemon simple syrup.

You can get bottles of the Royal Rose Lavender Lemon Simple Syrup I used online.

To make sure you have nice thick cake layers, you'll want to add a bit of volume to the cake mix. To do this, add a packet of powdered whipped topping and an extra egg to the ingredients called for on the Betty Crocker® Triple Chocolate Cake Mix box.

Equally divide the cake batter into two 8-inch round pans that have been lined with parchment paper and coated with baking spray.

Bake the cakes for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of each comes out clean. Remove cakes from oven and allow to cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from pans and cool completely.
