It was my daughter’s first birthday, and I was torn between baking or buying her first cake ever. I started looking into healthier bakeries in the area, but they were expensive and many of them still used white/refined flour and sugar, toxic food dyes for coloring or didn’t have designs I really liked.
But I really wanted my baby girl to have a first birthday cake (and a first birthday cupcake)! Finally, I decided to just bake a healthy cake, instead. But then, I got a little excited, and ended up baking three cakes and 24 cupcakes over two days.
And I have to tell you, not only did I bake three cakes, but I ate three cakes too! It was DELICIOUS! Best cake I’ve ever had! My parents also loved it. All of our friends at the party (including the other babies) loved it. It was truly a huge hit!
If you have a birthday coming up, whether it’s for you, a family member, a friend or a colleague, I guarantee this cake will be a huge hit! It’s delicious, moist, tasty, not too sweet and good for you!
