Home Made Louise Cake

Louise cake……. They said (the kiwi’s or new zealander) that this cake was originated here in NZ, It is a cake made of  thin butter cake base topped with raspberry jam and coconut meringue. Kiwi’s said it is a very old-fashioned cake made by elder people. Once you try a bite of this cake, you will never stop until you finish the whole slice. That’s why my daughter was there waiting for the photo shoot to be finished…………..Did you know that this cake is made with raspberry jam? Raspberry is a very good source of vitamin C and manganese.  This nutrient are both responsible for several crucial body processes, and vitamin C plays a large role in regulating and promoting health immune system malfunction………
