A slight blog pause the past week. Midterms seems to never get less hectic. But now I’m up for new post and inspiring pictures again! This post will be dedicated as a throwback to summer. I want to say that fall has finally arrived to DC, and it’s no longer summer. I baked this cake one of the last days of being home in Stockholm. The cake is a Swedish classic, “tosca cake” that I added coffee too. The inspiration actually comes from a boxmix, and has a mild taste of coffee too it. Perfect for a classic Swedish afternoon “fika”. Stay tuned!
