My lo’s birthday was coming up and I was thinking of making something that he would love by all means. I was brushing up my mind for ideas on birthday cakes and delicacies and was thinking of all those birthday parties I had attended till date. I was on the look out for something a little different from the normal fancy birthday cakes.

So just in time as always, my dearest bestie Kavya shared the recipe of a carrot cake which turned out to be a hit among her family and friends. My mind got instantly hooked on to the idea of this Carrot cake, more so as it was a whole wheat cake.

I tried out this cake and it turned out beautiful..The slight masala punch the spices impart to the cake brings in a fresh twist to a normal carrot cake. And an added highlight is the whole wheat that goes into making this yummy cake without affecting its taste one bit. On the whole, a must try cake for all the cake lovers out there. 🙂
