LEMON, ALMOND & RASPBERRY LAYER CAKE

I’m not sure what this lemon, almond & raspberry layer cake is celebrating. Maybe it is a half way mark cake – marking the start of the second half of my university degree (2.5 years to go!), or just a much-too-fancy afternoon tea cake. Though I have been making it on and off all year […]

Coconut Flour Almond Butter Truffles
