Marie's Maca Cake

Marie Vicente cuts slices of her legendary maca cake. People don't expect any cake to taste as good as her maca cake: it blows them away.

“While Marie seemed disappointed and a bit confused as to why I wouldn’t try her special maca guinea pig recipe, I was thrilled to devour a rather large piece of her (very) yummy maca cake. This cake would be a hit at any coffee shop in the USA. Often the women will lead me into their personal spaces to share with me their creative skills and interests. Marie is all about the cooking and raising children. Such intimate glimpses into foreign cultures is such a gift.” – Zoe Helene
