The weekend is a great time to get together with family and friends, perhaps with a BBQ on the beach or a
picnic at the park. And a cake is always the perfect item to share at these gatherings.
Today we’d love to introduce you to a deliciously creamy and smooth Matcha and Lime Cake with Strawberry and Coconut from the super talented Ida Ginman from @mymessyeatery.
Ida is a 21-year old girl who was born and raised in Finland. She lives in Sydney where she has a big interest in vegetarian and vegan foods. She loves to get creative in the kitchen whenever she has time to spare - check out her creations:

Ida’s recipe creates a sugar free and dairy free cake using nothing but raw and vegan ingredients. This means it doesn’t need to be baked, making it easy to prepare for a party.
The secret ingredient - avocados - are an excellent source of vitamin E, omega-3 and other nutrients that also gives the cake a creamy, smooth texture.
Ok, let’s just get down to business.
