My new favorite cake in the whole wide world. It has real carrots, raisins and walnuts on the inside and is wrapped in cinnamon buttercream. (And if you accidentally put in twice as much butter as the recipe calls for, it's heaven on a plate.)
I was born and raised in southern California. It was there that I met my husband, Mark, while he was in seminary and I was finishing up my teaching credentials. I was drawn to his humorous, loud, outgoing personality. Then in the back of a carefully decorated, candle lit, balloon filled, dinner prepped U-haul overlooking the ocean, Mark proposed. We got married and I followed him to the midwest where he now pastors a small church plant. I spend my days loving my awesome husband and my THREE sweet little girls.
