Happy Birthday, Graham!


Graham turned one on January 18th. I just can't believe it. We had a big party to celebrate last Sunday. I tried really hard to find a somewhat healthy cake, but they all sounded horrible. So, I settled on this carrot cake. I did substitute applesauce for half of the oil and I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour in place of the AP flour. I also only used 1/2 Tbsp of cocoa powder, mainly because I thought chocolate in carrot cake sounded weird. I found some cute little pans at Michael's and pulled the batter for Graham's out before I added the pecans for the big cake (which turned out great...super moist). It took him a minute to get into the whole cake thing (he seemed a little shell shocked all day-I guess waking from a nap to a house full of people will do that to you), but he ended up loving it! He also loved all the kids...I think there were only eight, but for some reason, seemed more like forty-two. All in all, I think it was a pretty successful first birthday!
