Posted on March 18th, 2021 to Ritual
This week’s recipe is one for indulgent self-care. Indulgence brought to you by a rich, chocolatey treat. Self-care brought to you by nourishing ingredients with feel-good benefits.
We teamed up with a couple of incredibly talented women, who just so happen to also be family, to bring you this gluten-free and refined-sugar-free cake recipe…
The cake recipe is by our founder’s cousin, Erika. Erika is a cake artist and baker based in Bogota, Colombia. Her signature bakes include elegant and rustic designs created with an eclectic mix of ingredients and flavors. Before becoming a full-time baker, Erika worked in the hospitality industry in Paris and Miami where she found her true passion in baking. Today she custom makes special occasion cakes always focusing on balanced textures, fresh ingredients, original flavors, and sophisticated designs.
The table setting and styling is by our founder’s other cousin, Erika’s sister, Tatiana. Tatiana founded home textiles brand Zuahaza in 2019 in Bogota, Colombia. In 2018, Tatiana made a trip to Charalá to learn about the rich history of cotton growing, spinning and weaving in this region. During her trip, she met with Corpolienzo, a cooperative of artisans. They decided to create a new line of textiles, born of the artisans’ extensive knowledge and of Tatiana’s desire to share creative, innovative textiles with the global market.
Zuahaza means “my sister” in the Muisca language of the people who lived in the Cundiboyacense mountain region of Colombia. Zuahaza strives to connect women from across Colombia, and to create unique products that reflect our diversity, history and dreams as statements of the unity and peace to come from Colombia. This is what sisterhood means to us. Our common mission is to create sustainable employment for women artisans in Colombia by revitalizing the craft of making textiles and collaborating to innovate in product and design by only using organic materials and sustainable practices.
