I came across this almond cake recipe from Food 52 the other day after lunch. Then I thought about the beautiful peaches and blueberries in my refrigerator. And here it goes, a very simple, elegant and delicious cake that takes no time to put together!
I am not going to lie. This recipe is pretty much a recycled one. I adapted my go-to shortbread recipe by adding some espresso and pecans in the cookie dough. And we got some buttery, nutty and coffee-infused cookies, which are already insanely good.
Yesterday I had my very first Instagram meet-up with one of my favorite cake decorators, Nancy from Saltadena. She came from Bellingham, WA to visit Vancouver with her lovely family. Oh I almost died over her little baby girl’s cuteness! Check out her Instagram and you will know what I am talking about. We had so much to chat about yet too little time. Huge thanks to Instagram for bringing me to awesome new friends.
Calling all lemon lovers! This lemon cake is lemony, tangy, moist, fluffy and delicious. It’s amazing to eat it plain, even more amazing with lemon glaze, but truly incredible to go with some lemony whipped cream and fresh berries. So wonderful for your summer backyard party.
What cake is better than an ice cream cake in summer? For my money, I’d say a mousse cake. Something as refreshing, delicious and amazing, but lighter, smoother, fluffier and it could look a little more elegant. Most importantly, a mousse cake makes you feel a little less fatty and guilty when eating it.
