Matcha White Chocolate Cake w Hibiscus Cream (gf)

For the last few weeks, I’ve been changing up my workout routine, taking a class at my gym’s branch in Rockefeller Plaza. It’s an area I don’t frequent because of the high density of tourists. For Atletica, though, I’m willing to push through the out-of-town gawkers for a good sweat.

Matcha Almond Cookies w Raspberry Filling
