I wrote a review of Wahpepah’s Kitchen in January, running down my thoughts on how Indigenously delicious the seasonal menu items are and how important the restaurant’s existence is for the land back movement and food sovereignty.
Today, I’m raving about the first ever Wahpepah’s Kitchen birthday cake graciously prepared for yours truly yesterday at the request of LRK. This blue corn beauty was topped with flowers, berry sauce, and seasonal berries.
The skies were clear and midmorning sun was pleasant and the nearby magnolia trees wafted a floral scent throughout the birthday brunch, attended by eight other family members. It took only a few minutes to whittle the cake down to a fourth. If we hadn’t eaten beforehand, I’m sure there wouldn’t have been any left to take home.
A legit, Indigenous birthday cake without the diet downfall guilt only Chef Wahpepah could make.
