When it comes to desserts, olive oil cakes are not at everyone’s top choice, but celebrities including Chrissy Teigen, Kourtney Kardashian, Shay Mitchell and Gigi Hadid are in love with these treats by Little House Confections.
Co-owner of Little House Confections Liz Roth, exclusively told Us Weekly that in her opinion, the appeal is that it’s super like – after you’ve eaten a full meal, you don’t feel like you’re eating this heavy dessert and in Italy, olive oil cake is extremely famous for that very reason.
For Roth and Little House Confections co-owner Jaymie Wisneski, what started as a quarantine hobby has turned into a social media sensation. Roth told Us that they were super shocked when Chrissy Teigen posted and mentioned that for months, she had been seeing the cakes and had wanted one.
The taste and ingredients are just as delectable as they’re popular on the ‘gram. Roth tells Us that the reason behind the moistness of their olive oil cakes is because almost all of the sweetness comes from fresh squeezed zest and juice, with of course, olive oil as the most important ingredient. She adds that they refuse to skimp on the quality of any of their ingredients since they are keys to the absolute freshest cake.
Bragg’s Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which is one of the most trusted products and highest quality on the market, is their hero ingredient. This is why Roth and Wisneski chose to partner with the natural food company – Bragg’s olive oil is perfect for baking the moistest, decadent olive oil cake.
To give back with renowned artists the Haas Brothers for a limited edition, “Bomb Ass Olive Oil Cake” tin for Father’s Day, Little House Confections and Bragg have teamed up, with 100 per cent of all proceeds being donated to the NAACP.- Advertisement -
The Little House Confections team told Us that as the Haas’ long-time friends, they decided to team up and make the collectible tin to help amplify community messages they feel are so important to heed, which are to: donate to those in need, raise awareness and spread happiness.
Anything goes when cutting into their olive oil cakes according to the bakers, even the way Kylie Jenner cut into her cake, which led to some fans being “disturbed.” Roth told Us that they love Kylie and her cuts, adding that Kylie is a true cake pioneer for them.
