sottile distinzione/subtle distinction

I am not exactly sure what it was that compelled me to make this cake, except it reminded me of my gram. Maybe it was because her birthday was a couple of weeks ago.  She would have been 99. Maybe its because  I still miss her everyday, despite her passing nineteen years ago. Maybe it was whipping the cream because she comes to mind every time I whisk to still peaks.  I am not exactly sure why, other than remembering she enjoyed the whipped cream unsweet. Hold the confectioners, pass the spoon.

She would enjoy dessert, but her preferences were always the less sugary choices . And, a tasty treat that paired seamlessly with a good cup of coffee?  A shoe-in.

In the end, the delicious blend of textures and flavors of this cake was not only satisfied a craving, but offered was therapeutic breath in my day.  And, I admit it.  I had good cry putting the cake all together. Love you gram!

When I was little, my grandfather called me Pistachio because I liked them so much. This cake hits me where I live. Pistachios, honey, and whipped cream are three of my absolute favorites. Problem is, I am afraid I will eat the whole thing myself…
