When you're trying to get a photo of the leftover birthday cake before the tiny humans eat it all 😋
Little man isn't a huge fan of chocolate, so I made a carrot cake for his birthday yesterday. The recipe is based on the Carrot almond cake with lemon cream cheese icing in the fabulous @louisekeats cookbook Something for Everyone. It's got mainly whole food-based recipes that are great in their own right, but also includes notes about how to adapt dishes to suit babies and younger kids. I love that ingredients are measured by weight, so I don't have a tonne of measuring cups to wash when I'm done cooking!
My lazier version (all measurements were quite rough!): mix together 3 eggs, 90mL full cream milk, 120g muscovado sugar, 180mL EVOO, and 230g grated carrot (2-3 carrots depending on size). Add 75g almond meal, 225g SR flour and a teaspoonful of ground cinnamon. Poor into a greased and lined 24cm round springform tin and bake at 160°C for 40 minutes and cool in the tin.
The icing was 250g cream cheese, the zest and juice of one lemon, and icing sugar to taste.
The decorations you can see on top were cut from raw slices of purple and orange carrots - I used metal fondant cutters to spell out the birthday message and a knife to cut stars for around the edge of the cake. It's made me want to experiment with fruit next time I make a cake!
The plate is the Aqua Watercolour Side Plate from @ecologyhomewares 😍

While riding by, I spotted another Community Garden in urban Charlotte, catering to everyone from the smallest of birds and critters such as bees, butterflies, worms, lady bugs, etc., to the hungriest of souls and bodies in need. Unlike the neighborhood garden that I featured earlier in the week, this one is maintained by Central United Methodist Church. They use land adjacent to their parking lot that would normally be overlooked & lie fallow to cultivate herbs, vegetables, fruit, blooming plants, etc. I am thrilled to see bird houses nailed to the fence posts and inspirational quotations meant to capture the intellect. Raised beds contain blooming chives and other herbs. Yarrow appears to have sprung up volunteer along the edge of the fenced plot. Water barrels sit on either end of the long, narrow garden tract, ready to engage with the irrigation system. If one so chooses, join the congregation for an uplifting message in word and song, in English or Spanish, then invest some sweat-equity in exchange for fresh, farm-to-table food. In a large city with limited access for many to fresh produce, this is a marvelous resource. Teach young children how things grow and let them taste the sweet reward of a job well done.✨Shout out to Central United Methodist Church on Albemarle Road in Charlotte, NC! Way to bless the community by meeting needs with LOVE in action!!✨ #communitygarden#urbanfarming#birds#pollinators#worms#herbs#vegetables#fruit#birdhouses#waterbarrels#irrigation#plot#raisedbeds#Spanish#English#sweatequity#produce#farmtotable#farmtofork#eatlocal#eatfresh#community#loveinaction#hardworkpaysoff#teachchildren#reaprewards#carolinianbynature#gardensinthecity#gardenparty#CharlotteNC @centralumc
