Small Matcha Cake

Soft vanilla sponge, decorated with light and fluffy matcha whipping cream. The cream is the perfect balance between bitter and sweet. Suitable for all matcha lovers.

Okay, can I just express how proud I am of this cake? It’s a simple, small cake, but the taste is amazing. If you love matcha as much as I do, this cake is right up your alley! Even my boyfriend, who isn’t much of a matcha fan, loved this cake. It has just the right amount of bitter green tea and sweet sugar. In addition, the cake looks gorgeous and serves a small crowd (2-3 people). There is no better cake for real matcha lovers. You only need a simple sponge and green tea whipped cream. The latter might sound fancy, but it takes just three ingredients.

The weather in the Netherlands has been cooling down this week. I don’t mind though: a little cold weather will make you appreciate the sun a bit more -I know, that’s deeeppp-. In addition, we’ve had some beautiful days last week. I think we even got over 22 C! What did you guys do last week? In this house, we enjoyed the sun on our little balcony. Dinner on the balcony every.day, while enjoying a… glas of cold water (cause I don’t do wine 🍷) haha… The good life though.

Hello sweethearts! What’s up? We’re halfway summer already. I say this so often, but: time flies. Did you guys make the most of it yet? I’ve been working, but enjoying the (few) sunrays too because of Pokemon Go. A few weeks ago, I went to my friends’ birthday party. As a surprise, her boyfriend had secretly ordered a gender reveal cake (she’s pregnant of their second child). I thought this was SO sweet as he really made an effort to contact a bakery and tried to find someone to make a gender reveal cake; a gender reveal cake is not very common over here in The Netherlands. Unfortunately, the cake turned out to be horribleRead more

This year, he didn’t really have a particular type of birthday cake he wanted. However, as he loves, loves, loves whipped cream more than any food in the world, his request was to make anything simple with lots of cream.
