Mister Green Tea And Raspberry Cake

Mister Green Tea And Raspberry Cake

After a trip to Japan I was asked to do a small cake that I would personally really enjoy eating for a special occasion. I had experimented with green tea matcha for several years so thought I would give this a go. Recently, I’ve added Heilala Vanilla, which really intensifies the flavours and the texture of the mousse. – Pierrick Boyer
