Inspired by the dress
It was the moment, when I saw that beautiful pastel green dress, and I knew I would make a cake that looks and tastes just like the dress. I mean, I did not eat the dress, but, with every glance at that dress, I just had that matcha taste in my mouth. I just wanted to put it on and have a cup of matcha cappuccino and a piece of matcha cake, layered with nothing other than raspberries. Then I touched it – it was soft, silky, fragile, almost as if I could break it by just touching it.
Since there are flowers on the dress, I though that I could decorate the cake with small flower petals, but, by the end, I chose the simple way – just with freshly picked flowers from my friend’s garden. But then I realized – I want to make not only a cake, but much more. I want to make food that matches the dress. Green and pastels – light and sparkling, but fragile, silky, and with texture. And I did. A few recipes inspired by the HM Conscious Exclusive 2018 green dress.
