4th Anniversary, Angel food Cake

It has been four years sharing recipes with you, how quickly time passes by, how beautiful has been this adventure, when I look back at everything I've learned, everything you've taught me, everything we've done together, Wow my heart shrivels and becomes tiny, it makes a lump in my throat and makes me cries, but out of happiness, knowing that you have followed me, that you have learned so many things, making a better blog has become something I never imagined, I can only say thank you, I cannot say anything else, my heart is immensely happy because to you, every day the first thing I do is see if you wrote, because thanks to you I can make my dream come true and cook every day, because it's you who motivates me to continue.

And since there is no birthday without cake, or well, there are, but it´s more fun and tasty with one, I wanted to make this super delicious raspberry and Orange Blossom water cake, decorated with edible flowers that my friends from Xpicy and Chef Juan Cabrera gave me for the anniversary, I just imagined your face saying WHATTTT? hahaha edible flowers? do I look like a rabbit? well no, I think they look beautiful and add lots of color, texture and beautifulness to anything, so tasty them, just like the orange blossom water that a friend brought me from Mexico DF, it makes me laugh That I usually have my friends looking for the weirdest things for cooking, but once they try the food that I make with them, their face is priceless, I love cooking for them and it fills me with joy when you send to me the pictures of the recipes and you are happy with them, It has made me cry more than once, so lets celebrate the 4th anniversary of Chokolat Pimienta with this delicate and sublime  raspberry and orange blossom water cake.
