Today is time for something fresh and delicious! This year I made this cake for Mother’s Day but I’d say it’s a perfect summer cake in general. I love healthy eating and enjoying good food. This belongs more likely to the second of those categories but this isn’t actually that unhealthy! The cake includes some whole wheat cookies, fresh berries and low fat yoghurts. 😉 Well, okay it might not be the healthiest thing in world but it’s super delicious for sure!
