Merry Xmas from the White Stripes & happy new cake!

Is it a bird ? Is it a plane ? No, it’s Santa and his candy canes!
You already know how much we love Jack White. Well, what you don’t know is we love all his music projects as well, staring with the legendary The White Stripes. What’s not to like ? Meg and Jack adorable encounter in a restaurant, the raw simplicity of their songs, the red and white aesthetics, and, last but not least, the one of a kind energy of the band live ! Jack White stamina combined with Meg sublime shyness is one of our best teenage memories. This band incarnates all by itself the Garage Rock movement we bathed in.

With Xmas approaching, we thought it was time to pay our respects to our favorite red and white band. Are you dreaming of a White Stripes Xmas? Then take a slice of this winterly wonder : spiced cherries and cranberries, delicious eggnog whipped cream and the moister red velvet you’ve ever tasted… What’s not to like ? NO-THING! 🎅🎄🙃 Also, we got totally carried away with our love for Meg & Jack White 🙈 and went nuts with the red & white theme.

Well, time to give a spin to the vinyls Santa brought us while enjoying our cake. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL and may the White Stripes Magic be with you!
