  • Marissa Fluted Cake Pan
  • Mixing bowls
  • 2-1 Scraper & Spatula 10”
  • Stainless Steel Whisk 
  • Set of 3 Cooling Rack
  • 4pcs Measuring Cups with Scraper


  • 3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter melted
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 1 Cup Buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp Grapefruit Zest
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp Rose Simple Syrup or Rose Water 


  • 1 Cup Grapefruit Juice, freshly squeezed 
  • 2 Cups Icing Sugar 
  • 1 Tsp Rose Syrup or Rose Water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Take out your fluted cake pan, but don't grease it yet.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk to combine and set aside.
  4. In a second mixing bowl, combine the vegetable oil, melted butter, and sugar. Mix to combine well - about 2-3 minutes with a handheld mixer. Slowly add the eggs one by one and then the buttermilk. Continue beating and add the vanilla and grapefruit zest and rose syrup.
  5. Add half of the flour mixture and continue beating until almost incorporated. Add the rest of the flour mix and continue beating until everything is well incorporated and smooth.
  6. Grease your pan and add the cake mix. Bake for about 40 minutes or until done. To check the doneness of the cake, insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, you can take it out.
  7. Let the cake cool a bit before transferring it to a cooling rack to finish cooling off. 
  8. To make the icing whisk together the grapefruit juice, icing sugar, and rose syrup until well incorporated. Drizzle all over the cake.
