This is a classic, but with a twist. The pinch of sage and toasted walnuts makes this yummy dessert into something euro-exotic. Just enough sweet lavender honey with earthy smells of fig, sage and walnut. A touch of Pinot Grigio -- okay a lot, who are we kidding? -- and you will hear your table hush to the sound crickets and yum.
True to classic, rustic gourmet style this Green Tea cake has a light fragrance that is so refreshing. It's a challenge to achieve a cake that holds the subtlety of the flavor while being wholesome and sophisticated. The Russian Caravan frosting comes from my favorite flavor of tea and adds just the right final note to this delicious cake.
