This little one want a bite of cake really bad and kept a close eye on Itty Bitty enjoying hers. Finally the temptation was too much and when the opportunity presented itself she had a taste! So glad I got the shot!
I made Carrot Cake for this party, my recipe but doubled is here, enough for 35 people. This time I made sure I took pics but the final ones were not the best. I was running late! We were in the middle of redoing somethings in the kitchen and I was a little frazzled by it all and having to bake too. I grabbed frozen yogurt out of the freezer (instead of buttermilk). I keep buttermilk and yogurt starter measured out in ½ cup portions in my freezer so I don't have to remember to buy buttermilk for my occasional recipe uses and don't have to throw left overs out. I didn't notice the buttermilk/yogurt mistake until that night.
Also I forgot I was out of raisins, so I added an extra cup of grated carrots instead! That made a total of 8 cups of grated carrots for the doubled recipe! Everyone had their veggies for the day, I told you it was a healthy recipe! Everyone said it was the best carrot cake I had ever made! Apparently it's also a forgiving recipe :) I think the kids liked it best without the raisins too so from now on, I may make it without the raisins and with yogurt on purpose.
Grate the carrots......
Fresh from the oven......
Happy Birthday sweet girl!
