Happy Easter to all those to whom it's relevant! I hope you all had a wonderful day of warmth, sunshine, family, Easter egg hunting, stuffing your face with chocolate post-Lent, or whatever you usually do today. To celebrate the spring, a girl kitchen date was in order and baking ensued, the perfect cake was made for the lightness and elegance of springtime :)
Vegan and Gluten-Free Orange Cardamom Cake
w/ Orange Pistachio Icing
...and yes, there was a middle layer of frosting and blood orange jam.
Coconut Chocolate Pie w/ Spelt Crust
And on a final baking note: These are actually the best macaroons ever. I made a batch last night, and they are half gone... amazingly simple, and yet so delicious.
