Me again Vicky. I love all things Birthday. Love the look of this cake. Since your tendencies are vegan, an easy and delicious recipe for Carrot Cake is in How it all Vegan. Made it for my sister's 30th. Used extra grated carrots and added grated gala apples for sweetness. There were no vegans in that crowd, but the cake was devoured. For my son's first bday made the banana bread from the same book. Made an extra one for the adults WITH chocolate chips.
