I am so excited to share this recipe with you, it has been such a great experience and honor to meet and work with Kimberly of The Little Plantation and Aimee of Twigg Studios. Not only because I had the chance to learn more about blogging and styling, it has been so great to connect with like-minded women, and so skilled creative people.
This beautiful cake we developed together is inspired by Kimberly's vibrant south American roots. Three milks for a soft and flavorful recipe that share with us her childhood tastes. So precious.
This blog post feels very important and personal for an other reason too. I had the chance to work with Kimberly and Aimee because my kids were at the childminder place. I feel guilty just as I write it. Honestly I do. We decided to send them to this little space to smooth the passage from complete homeschooling, to having them going twice a week to a Forest School ( a nursery that runs in a protected area in the wood, they only place I could think of, as my children are unstoppable form most of the daytime). It is a big change for us all and after so many doubts I now feel confident, it is the right step to take. In my mind feels a bit of a failure that we did not stick to the homeschooling plan, in my heart I am happy to have learned flexibility. More than to go with the flow, I try to grow myself into new perspectives as my children grow, because all sort of things change. By the time you learn to adapt again is already time to start it all over. So I have to overcome my sense of underachievement and surrender to the fact that I am a better parent if I get some time off, for myself. To be the mindful and present mum I want and hope to be. And, btw, they love the place. Not even a bit of fuss displayed.
Now that I spread my mummy concerns, I am going to tell you more about this awesome collaboration. Because I loved it! It's quite special to meet women like Kimberly of the beautiful Thelittleplantation. She is a great plant based food-blogger and she wanted to recreate this recipe vegan and super interesting. As soon as she shared her ideas of the flavour matching our mind blew! The combination of pistachio milk, plant based condensed milk, cultured coconut milk and the matcha tea powder is a feast in the mouth! Aimee of the magic blog twiggstudios, has a great eye for details and an incredible knowledge in creative baking. She just released an awesome book! With her touch, space unravel, details fall into place naturally. That flower on the cake, that dripping milk. So beautiful to create together with so skilled and generous women! And I feel proud to have contributed to this!
