beets, cake

it was my friend jessica’s birthday the other day, so we celebrated by baking a beautiful beet cake!  (well, to be honest, my friends made the cake and i just documented its creation.)

i baked this cake once last year, but this time around was so much better.  it was probably due to the addition of icing, a second layer, and the fact that miss taylor is a baking wizard!  you can find the whole recipe (and more photos) on her lovely little blog.

who ever thought beets and chocolate would go hand-in-hand!  they totally do.

(inspired by tiger in a jar)

  1. i’ve never heard of anything remotely like beet cake and yet my mouth is watering! additional shout out to your friend’s shirt/dress/apron. whatever it is, i love it :)

  2. I just made a beet cake last week! It was a variation on red velvet which called for beets instead of food coloring. I didn’t have high hopes for it, but it sort of grew on me. I like the old fashioned mixer. Great pictures of a fun time together.
