BEETROOT CORDYCEPS CAKE + A PEARL COCONUT FROSTING



Contributor: Brianna Beard

"I wanted to keep the coconut frosting a bright white and Sun Potion's Microground Pearl was not only the perfect color, but gives it that beauty enhancing quality. Who doesn't love pearls? They represent beauty, simplicity and radiance!"

Pearl works to support our bodies with nutrient-rich Calcium, aids our bodies in natural collagen production and also has  been studied to for it s benefits to cognitive-health benefits! 

I made this cake for my soul sisters that came to support my journey into motherhood, my blessing way. Instead of a traditional baby shower, it is a Native American ceremony to offer empowerment to the woman that is moving from maiden to motherhood. I was so honored to have all of these women show up for me that I wanted to make something very special to share. This was the perfect cake...nourishing, adaptogenic, medicinal, delicious and beautiful!

If you like carrot cake you will love this version with beets. The shredded beets offer moisture and sweetness to the batter. It isn't light and fluffy, but one small slice will fill your belly with joy! I added Cordyceps to the batter. This powdered medicinal mushroom is very mild in flavor and a potent anti-aging fungi. Researchers believe their antioxidant content may explain their anti-aging potential.

I used pearl to spike the frosting. I wanted to keep the coconut frosting a bright white and Sun Potion's Microground Pearl was not only the perfect color, but gives it that beauty enhancing quality. Who doesn't love pearls? They represent beauty, simplicity and radiance! Why wouldn't you put Pearl in the frosting!?

My fondest memory of childhood was my first trip to Hawaii. Everything was so vibrant and fresh. The first time I tasted a mango I became obsessed with food in that form, simple and unprocessed. I’ve gone through every food phase, from vegetarian to vegan to pescatarian to completely raw. Through those experiences I have discovered I need flexibility in order to maintain balance. So my approach now is MOSTLY plant based with medicinal herbs and adaptogens infused into as many meals as possible. The food I make is an exploration of the unlimited potential of nature, preparing foods with seeds, nuts, roots, stems, pollens, algae, seaweeds, fungi, sprouts, leaves and flowers!
