  1. Drool..food p0rn in the morning…Happy Birthday to you!

  2. Oh wow! Is that your carrot cake? Does it taste as good as it looks?

    Also…I’m kind of leaning toward the no sugar thing for Little Man. Is this a recipe you’d be willing to share?

  3. Happy birthday! Cake is the best breakfast, and that is a beauty. Hope it’s a great day.

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope everyone in your life (including your yummy self) treats you especially well today.

    Now pass me a slice!

  5. There is absolutely nothing better than cake for breakfast on your birthday — except cake for breakfast every day for the next week (at least in my household 🙂

  6. Luna, you are so my people. Hope it was as good as it looks & that you had a great day!

  7. That really IS the breakfast of champions! Happy Birthday!

  8. OMG, now I’m jonesing cake for MY breakfast. (Or dinner, who cares?) Thanks a lot– tell me there are cornflakes in there or that you put it in a bowl and mashed it up with milk.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

  9. Luna- your cake turned out absolutely gorgeous- I bet it tastes even better than it looks! I hope you have a beautiful day for birthday! Keeping you and the family in my thoughts.

  17. for those who are interested, I began with this recipe and adapted it in several ways (’cause that’s how I roll):

    I reduced the amount of sugar by quite a bit and increased the ginger and spices, then I used melted butter instead of half of the vegetable oil.

    for the frosting, I adapted a standard honey cream cheese frosting by using agave syrup instead of honey, and about half of the confectioner’s sugar.

    I don’t usually say this, but OMG.
