Pistachio & white chocolate cake


Pistachio is on of my favorite nut, it's flavourful and delicate. Its beautyful dark pink skin hiding a light green treasure is a delight by itself. I use pistachio paste for my cake, its rich texture and parfume are really something, believe me !  and the white chocolate gives an amazing moist !
