This past weekend, I attended my niece’s 11th birthday party. Such a fun age on the cusp of her teenage years. We have a special bond that I absolutely adore even more as she is growing into the sweetest young woman (gah, I hated it when someone older called me a young woman back when I was one). But really, she’s quirky, she’s crazy, and she’s full of in-your-face personality. And on the flip side she’s also so caring, loving, and tender-hearted.
Watching her grow into this person has been so fun. This birthday, instead of going ga-ga over Monster High toys, she was overcome with emotion and joy when her dad brought out two hamsters that she had been wishing for for months. I know she’s going to be the best and most caring mama to those little furry guys.
And although Oak’s party wouldn’t be complete without a tie-dyed cake full of unnatural colors that would turn your insides neon, I just wanted to celebrate this little lady’s birthday with a cake as naturally sweet as she is.
This apple carrot cake is perfect for any after-school snack, mid-day munchies, and to be honest, probably not all that bad for breakfast either!
Make sure you head on over to Super Healthy Kids, where I’m sharing all the recipe details for this cake.
