  • About

The mimosa flower is a symbol of the strength and love of women. In Italy, on the ‘Festa della Donna’ on the 8th of March it is common to give a few sprigs of the bright yellow blossoms to female friends, colleagues or anyone special to you. Torta mimosa is abundant at this time of year. Use eggs with very yellow yolks for the best colour. The cake can be made a day ahead and assembled on the day of serving.
