Aquafaba Mousse au Chocolat Tart and an Afternoon at an English Landscape Garden

A sunny afternoon at a lovely park and a beautiful cake have a lot in common – they make us feel at home in this very moment, wherever it may be. We take you with us today for a summer walk at one of the most lovely spots that we know in my old home town, the Oldenburg castle garden, and of course there will be coffee and cake as well.
